Bill Evans was such a looming force as a trio pianist that people tend to overlook his achievements in a quintet context. Few sessions made the point throughout his career, though, like this 1976 date that was one of Evans' personal favorites. With longtime friend Philly Joe Jones plus new-to-Evans associates Harold Land, Kenny Burrell and Ray Brown, the ensemble is stellar to say the least, and the players strike a comfortably creative groove on a program that includes originals by trumpeters Thad Jones and Kenny Wheeler, plus Burrell's blowing tune "Bass Face."
