One of the two most important associations in the early development of the incredible talent of Bill Evans was undoubtedly his nine-month 1958 stay with the Miles Davis Sextet that also included John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley. The other was the year-and-a-half span in which Scott LaFaro was the bassist in Bill's newly-formed trio and they developed their remarkable creative rapport, working towards what Evans termed simultaneous improvisation. Portrait in Jazz was the first of four albums by the Evans/LaFaro/Paul Motian team; in it can clearly be heard the exciting sound of new ideas being born.

OK- so I discovered this album 40 or more years after the fact- anyway, it's now one of my favorite's, both for performance, musical selection and sound quality. The vinyl version I got is absolutely mind-blowing in it's rich acoustic sound staging and rhythm. 5 stars for sure!
