"Bill Evans' recordings almost always received good to excellent sound, and the Analogue Productions reissues are no exception. While I don't own the original releases, the 45 rpm reissues clearly better, even after VTA adjustments, the later OJC reissues or the earlier 33 1/3 rpm Analogue Productions releases. The 45 rpm reissues are more musical and transparent; instruments have greater three-dimensionality and frequency extremes, especially lower octaves, exhibit greater resolution and impact. Get them before they're sold out!" Myles Astor, Positive-Feedback Online, Issue 34,

Bill Evans's return to full activity in 1962 came almost a year after his celebrated trio recordings at the Village Vanguard. Just ten days after that classic "live" session, bassist Scott LaFaro had died in a highway accident. Evans, deeply shaken, eventually re-formed his trio with the same drummer (Paul Motian) and Chuck Israels on bass. Their first visit to a studio was for a dual purpose: to make an all-ballad-tempo album, Moonbeams, and this "normal" set at the same time. It was producer Orrin Keepnews's thought that recording eight slow numbers in a row might prove unduly enervating; accordingly, the total two album repertoire was interspersed over three days of recording and the net result was two excellent additions to the Evans catalog.

Originally released in 1962.

Great press and free from pops and clicks (for once AP). Musically rewarding, enjoy!

This release was my first experience with AP's 45rpm releases and I was overwhelmingly impressed by the dead silence of this pressing. All that could be heard during low level passages was the resonance of the snare drum… period! I have not heard an original to compare with but IMHO the sonics and soundstage were very lifelike and pleasing to listen to even when played on my rather modest system.

Bill Evans Trio, masters of Jazz... How can I a simple soul evaluate a master??? Waltz for Debbie, Portraits in Jazz, all great all pure jazz, all from one of the best in Jazz... I realize the bass player has changed due to a death, RIP... Bill Evans is a master and continues on this LP in a great tradition... Buy Them All... The pressing??? FANTASTIC!!!
