Bill Evans' Some Other Time: The Lost Session from the Black Forest Vol. 1!

A double reel release of the full session of Some Other time. Limited numbered edition of 100 copies!

The recordings on this album constitute the material from a June 20th, 1968 studio session recorded by Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer (HGBS) and Joachim-Ernst Brendt in Germany's Black Forest. This is no ordinary recording. This enthralling Bill Evans session was recorded five days after a famous performance at the 1968 Montreux jazz festival by Evans, bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jack DeJohnette. Verve's Montreux live recording won a Grammy, but this studio session has been in the vaults ever since.

2xHD received Positive Feedback's ‘Best Sounding album of the year' award for this album two years in a row. 2xHD's reel-to-reel 1/4-inch 15-inch-per-second tape edition of the album received Postive Feedback's Tape of the Year for 2022.

I enjoyed this recording but I feel it is let down by the piano being heavily shifted to the left channel, that is apart from the last track where Bill Evans really shines with a solo turn with good center imaging and dynamics. Its such a shame when the soundstage is poorly presented, it would have been a 5 for me if Bill Evans piano was centered for this recording.
