Legendary jazz pianist Bill Evans teams with jazz guitarist Jim Hall!

Diverse set encompasses ballads, waltzes, hard-swinging bop

AAA mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original analog master tape

In 1962, legendary jazz pianist Bill Evans collaborated for the first time on record with jazz guitarist Jim Hall to create the landmark album Undercurrent. And even though it is a two-person improvisational affair, it is almost unfathomable that these two giants alone fill up all the grooves on this record. The thoughtful interplay between these two musicians created such a beautiful, lush, and emotional journey that their work influenced many.

At the time of this recording, Bill Evans was one of the top jazz pianists (his performance with Miles Davis on Kind Of Blue is still a high-water mark), but he stopped performing and recording after the death of his peer, bassist Scott LaFaro. Eventually, he was persuaded to return to music, and this was one of the first recordings upon his return.

This notable reissue is an all-analog production affair — AAA Mastered from the original analog master tapes and cut live by audio guru Kevin Gray (Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Charles Mingus) — and it's never sounded better.

Reviewer: William Taylor
I had heard that the sonics of previous releases of this album were disappointing so I waited to purchase it----Kevin Gray did a fine job with this pressing. There is some surface noise on my copy, but it's tolerable, and most importantly, it sounds good. I'm pleased with my purchase.
