Essential Jazz/Bill Evans Album
Peter Sklaroff | 07/16/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I found this album used, and purchased it to gain some exposure to Evans' work. I must say that this is some of the most sensitive, lyrical, and thoughtful piano playing that I have ever heard. I can listen to this album over and over again, each time gleaning new insights into Evans' mastery of touch and harmony. I could not reccomend this album more."
Evans at his very best...

"Something musically very significant happened to Bill Evans in the period before he tragically passed away in 1980....his playing moved to another level entirely...and as if to emphasise this, his performance on this recording is simply wonderful....jazz piano really doesn't get any better than this recording.

You can talk as much as you want about all the amazing piano players that have dominated jazz since Bill Evans departed this planet, but I have to say that there really isn't anyone else that I have heard that can capture the true essence of jazz in the way he could. It swings, it's emotional, it's entirely individual, it's without comparison.

You know that you are simply listening to real genius...and this album amply demonstrates that we should avidly cherish musicians like they really are few and far between.

In a world which celebrates mediocrity as worthy of praise...enjoy a real and true master of his art.

A genuine jazz legend...doing what he loved most.
