Released:
Label: Fantasy Records
The unique interplay between pianist Bill Evans and bassist Scott LaFaro became even more special with the addition of drummer Paul Motian on this early Evans masterpiece. Overall, the set finds Evans and company swinging standards at a tasty medium tempo, though "When I Fall In Love," "Spring Is Here" and "Blue In Green" (Miles Davis was listening carefully) are all slowed down with that delicious push/pull tension that Bill Evans put into his downcast ballads. Superb remastering, bonus cuts and Orrin Keepnews informative liner notes seal the deal.
