Few albums in the history of contemporary American music can be more deserving than this one of the designation Original Jazz Classic. It is the first of two Riverside albums derived from the legendary final appearance of the first Bill Evans trio - taped during the last day of a Village Vanguard engagement, barely ten days before the tragic death of bassist Scott LaFaro. The recordings have long been recognized as capturing the essence of the unique three-way interaction that characterized the trio. This album is further distinguished by its emphasis on the solo work and compositions of the innovative LaFaro.

Originally released in 1961.

Sounds great played through a quality DAC and you also get a few other takes. Other reviewer is correct, you will be looking around your room for people who seem to be with you on this one. I even had to check my door once as I thought someone was coming to knock...

Brilliant, But Beware

The performance on this DSD is amazing. There is one caveat to consider, audience noise. I was listening to this in a cafe with noise-cancelling headphones and I kept hearing voices and had to pause the recording. Yes, the chatter (you can almost make out conversations in the crowd) comes from the recording. This can be a bit annoying, but I guess it lends itself to the club atmosphere. Again, five stars for the musicianship.
