5.0 out of 5 stars Transcendental 9 April 1999
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you dig beauty and want to be taken away by it, this is indeed an appropriate vehicle for such an excursion. On this volume of the solo sessions Bill Evans takes popular tunes and frees the tonality by staying away from the bass of the chord. He also uses the whole tone scale to add more air. Of course his time is impeccable even when its free. I miss the man. I would be happy to shine the shoes of the guy that did the taxes for the guy that tuned his piano.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 9 Feb. 2000
By James Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bill Evans does it again-- when most solo piano albums turn out to be boring after a few listens, you can always discover something that you haven't heard previously, each time you listen to the CD. The tonality of the CD is more free than Solo Sessions Vol. 1, but still beautiful nonetheless. Evans' version of 'I Loves' You Porgy' is one of the best pieces of music I've ever heard, period. Indeed he played piano the way it was meant to be played.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Bill never played badly" 25 Aug. 2000
By Yunyu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Before I bought this cd I knew nothing about bill. What I knew was just his name. I also heard he's a genius. I finally got his cd a few days before. It's so right that he lived for his music and his piano. He guide you to his music world and affect your own. A song create a dream. You dream you float you want more. All the songs are remarkable. Santa Clause is coming to Town was lovely.I love you,Porgy and What kind of fool am I? are so gentle even hiding a little sadness. How sensative! How could he make tunes come into lives. I was reading the liner notes while listening. It's by his close friend--Gene Lees. As I read on I know more about bill. Beforehand I thought Bill's still alive, when I knew that Bill had passed away on 1980 Sep. the tears in my eyes prevented me from reading. He left before I was born. What a pity! He should be remembered by jazz lovers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very powerful, but not the best of Evans 2 Feb. 2007
By Rick loves jazz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The liner notes of this disc and its companion (Vol I) are very revealing. According to Orrin Keepnews, Evans, a well-known junkie, was needing cash and was "strung-out" (coming down from his heroin high). He had never recorded a solo album, but wanted to try it. Neither Evans or Keepnews (the owner of Riverside Records and the producer of these sessions) liked the output, as it was not as polished and carefully crafted as Evans at his best. In fact, Evans made Keepnews promise to never to release these sessions, a request that Keepnews honored until well after the pianist's death.

These recordings have an emotional power that some of Evans' other recordings don't have. They are unusually raw, they are, however, uneven. There are times that Evans is struggling for ideas.

I love these recordings, and Evans never did a bad one, but these are not his best. His best solo recording is "Alone", recorded for Verve a few years later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Starting place 17 Mar. 2002
By Spencer Delanda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
where to begin with such an album?
just leave it to bill evans to create this masterpiece.
for me there were so many bill evan's albums around that i didnt know where to start. this album is a great place to start because you get up close and personal with bill, one on one. after listening to this album twice, you feel like your best friend just told you their entire life story. bill Evans throws all his cards out on the table with this one.
