These early recordings by Bill Evans are great. You should own them if you have any interest in jazz.
This box is terrible. It's one of many "out of copyright" boxes issued on the Not Now label. They take released material and copy it, usually futzing with the tone controls so it sounds worse than the original issue. This label has no access to the original tapes.
Low budget, low quality, low price. Not a penny goes to the artist's estate. Not a penny goes to the original record company, either, which means there's no incentive for those with access to the masters to actually do any further serious work in preserving and expanding the artist's legacy.
Make your own call. But you really can do better in so many ways by passing on this box.
