Numbered edition pressed on 200-gram vinyl by Quality Record Pressings for the first time!

 

Here it is: THE Audiophile Jazz Fan's box set to end all box sets - All Of Bill Evans' Riverside releases cut at 45 RPM PLUS The Cannonball Adderley Know What I Mean? release for which Evans was such an important contributor!

"The new set is struck from the same parts but pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Kassem's own QRP plant. ... judging from other comparisons I've done, I'd guess the QRPs have an edge. But I will say this: these are, for the most part, extraordinary-sounding recordings, better than any you're likely to find. If you love the music, you should consider the purchase." — Fred Kaplan, Stereophile, Nov. 1, 2017

Of everything Analogue Productions has reissued, nothing has come close in sales or accolades to the 45-RPM versions of Bill Evans titles from his Riverside catalog. And now we've compiled all of them into one irresistible box set package. Includes facsimiles of each original jacket along with an 18-page booklet detailing Evans' career and Riverside era.

Titles Included: New Jazz Conceptions, Everybody Digs Bill Evans, Portrait In Jazz, Explorations, Sunday At The Village Vanguard, Waltz For Debby, Moonbeams, Know What I Mean?, Interplay, How My Heart Sings! and At Shelly's Manne-Hole.

Now pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings!

Wow! Just received this gigantic box. At first it didn't felt like i really own it. Thick textured box. Well you've got to have it to understand. Unprecedented.

Reviewer: dmason19@sbcglobal.net
I am overwhelmed with the care and attention to detail that went into this project. The pursuit of perfection in every aspect from the labels to the jacket, to the booklet and the box. All of the work to produce an outstanding collection of Bill Evans is evident in every aspect of this project. But above all is the sound. In the over used but understated phrase "It is like having the band right in front of you". The detail of every instrument is just simply there. It is no effort to close your eyes and place each member of the group. I am not a collector of albums. I buy music to listen and go that Zen place in my mind. Every album in this set is simply awesome. If you are a Jazz fan, a fan of Bill Evans this Analog Productions is a master work that will not disappoint.


exquiste - overworldly presentation of Evans Work

These recordings are impeccable. The presence and imaging are so vibrant and engaging. Present is all the work with Scott Lafaro, not just the Vanguard sessions. A great book. Not inexpensive, but a stellar piece of musical history that is incredibly well done. Buy it before it goes out of print.


A dream come true

I have been a life long Evans fan. Was not a able to pick up some of the individually realeased 45s so when the box set came out I was one of the first in line and I wasn't disappointed. The originals were well recorded and the 45s are stunning. The booklet give a great history on Bill.

For any Evans fan this is a must have.

My wife entered my listening room the other day, she usually don`t do that, and ask what are you playing? A record from that big box over there I said, why are you asking? I have never heard such a sound down here she said; the soundstage are so big, so clear and natural, I feel that the mucisians are here in the room, this is incredible she add. After that she stayed in the room with me for another record and she said nothing when she left with a big smile.
