Great chemistry

The only Bill Evans record with Gary Peacock on bass, (a future lifetime member of the Keith Jarrett Trio), and the last time Evans would use Paul Motian, (his first trio drummer, dating back to "New Jazz Conceptions"), this trio offers a fascinating look at what might've been. The Evans and Peacock combination sparkles with a new contrapuntal zest, more rhythmically playful, but less melodically liquid.

Next to the Lafaro and Motian team, this is my favorite Evans rhythm section.
