There's scarcely a more towering figure in modern jazz — save Miles and Coltrane — than the great Bill Evans. His relaxed and emotional style at the piano would prove influential to not only his peers but to generations of pianists who would follow him.

It also doesn't hurt, points out, that he appeared on (and had great influence over the direction of) Kind Of Blue and that the two LPs from his trio's landmark stint at the Village Vanguard in 1961 (Waltz For Debby and Sunday At The Village Vanguard) are both stone-cold classics.

Evans is joined here by none other than bassist Chuck Israels and drummer Larry Bunker for this 1965 recording. The album includes the heart-wrenching "Who Can I Turn To?" alongside "If You Could See Me Now" and Johnny Carisi's "Israel."

"Although all eight of the selections heard on this Verve release have been recorded on other occasions by pianist Bill Evans, these renditions hold their own," writes AllMusic.

This is a flawless pressing of a wonderful album. Totally quiet, excellent soundstage and, as always an elegant album jacket. I’ve never heard an original pressing, but I’d be surprised if it topped this version. Once again well done Acoustic Sounds!

Nearly perfect

This is right up there with the Mofi pressings. The balance is so good with Evans dead center drums to the right and the bass to the left and center. So dead on ; you are right there, center stage.

This ranks up there with the best of the Acoustic Sounds Verve reissues. Wide soundstage, tight bass, dynamic. Highly recommend.
