Good Evans, is that Hall?
on 6 April 2015
Always been a fan of both Evans and Hall since the '60s. To hear them together here is just pure delight. They complement each so brilliantly that you don't miss a rhythm section. Listening to take 2 of Valentine each takes his turn to provide the bass line ....Evans' underlying playing is complete mastery and when he takes the lead Hall somehow makes the guitar sound like a bass and drums! How did he do that? As a bassist and guitarist I'm just mesmerised by the sound he achieves.
I simply can't stop playing this disc and have made a copy for the car and also put it on my iPad, sitting, walking or driving I'm thrilled by it and always hear something new. For me it's up there with the Hall, Baker, Desmond recordings, my all time favourite before Undercurrent.
Evans is long gone and Hall much more recently but thankfully they made this iconic recording and wrapped it in a timeless vacuum that transcends all those years since its brilliant creation.
