"In my previous review, I stated that the CD I had was hard to hear and that the bassist and drummer were almost inaudible. I also said that what I did hear of their playing was uninspired. I can't explain it, but I listened to a different copy of this CD and it had much better fidelity. Out of fairness to Mr. Morrell and Mr. Gomez, I wish to revise some of my previous comments.Mr. Gomez is an excellent bassist. His work is splendid throughout, particularly on "Good bye" and "Sleepin' Bee" as well as the previously mentioned "Five". It's been my observation too many fans pay a lot of attention to the pianists and blowers at the expense of the drummers and bassists. Many don't really appreciate how much the bass adds to a jazz combo. Without good "bottom" many compositions would be uninteresting and even directionless. This explains, but doesn't excuse, why I wrote what I did before. I should have realized there was something wrong with the copy of the CD I had, but didn't.So, my apologies to Mr. Gomez (and Mr. Morrell, who also plays very well here). I would hate to think that anybody avoided listening to this CD because of my previous review. By all means, listen to Bill Evan's playing, but also realize how much his playing is enhanced by the contributions of Messrs. Morrell and Gomez."
