CD Reviews

Bill evans revisits his kind of blue days
williedynamite | 10/05/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bill Evans Blue in Green; The canada concert is one of my favorite Bill Evans albums. Quite a bit of the album consists of ballads, the two Lonely people, what are you doing for the rest of your life and of course the title track blue in green, but there are also a few jams as well. 34 skido, so what and TTT. What makes this Cd especially good is the exquisite playing of the trio. Of course Bill Evans is the groups leader, but one shouldn't forget Marty Morrell on the drums and the inventive Eddie Gomez on the bass. Together they make a perfect trio, one in which all three are equal parts of the same group. Also this being a live concert you really get to HEAR the trio perform live making this a very organic feeling album. This album is a real treat for Bill evans fans. very worth it."
A Joyous Romp for the Trio

"This is the most extroverted Bill Evans CD I've found and it's nice to hear him really going after the piano for almost the entire album. While Bill Evans conistantly amazes I would say that Eddie Gomez produced the best bass playing that I have heard so far. His pizzicato solos are both melodic and virtuosic but his arco solos call to mind a saxophonist due to their lyrical lines and expressive tone. His solo on "Very Early" is the most lyrical bass solo I have heard; the first time I heard it I thought someone was playing an alto. This is great music."
Great Bass Work

"Evans is great on this recording. But for me, the most significant element is the bass playing of Eddie Gomez. This is a real treat for bass players to hear, and shows the greatness of Gomez in the lineage of jazz bass playing. Not to be missed."
