CD Reviews

First-rate album
James Kim | Northern Virginia, USA | 07/26/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album sets the standard for an intimate session by a solo piano. It's hard to find music more vulnerable yet precise in technique and finesse. This album is peaceful yet heartbreaking at the same time."
Songs of despair
JEAN-MARIE JUIF | BESANCON France | 03/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This record ( and its pair, volume 2) may be the most underrated record by the immense Bill Evans.Both volumes were recorded on the same day, January 10,1963, and they are exceptionnal. In fact, this is some of the greatest stuff Bill Evans ever recorded. One and a half year after Scott LaFaro's tragic death, Bill Evans is alone in a studio, and simply plays some of the greatest tunes he ever recorded. This is a very desperate album, a very sad one, but the music is completely outstanding. This is simply beauty. Bill's version of "my favorite things" is absolutely incredible, and so are the other tunes. These records have always been among my favorites by Bill Evans. Magnificent, essential to every jazz lover. You can't miss it!!!"

"Wow! What a sultry sound. Very intense and deep with emotion. Sends my mind into relaxation and warmth through my body."
