Album Review

Philly Joe Jones was a member of the Bill Evans Trio for a short time in 1967 but none of his recordings with the pianist were released at the time. This two-LP set from 1982 features the pair (along with bassist Eddie Gomez who had recently started his own longtime association with Evans) in superb form. Jones consistently lit a fire under the pianist and, even though Bill Evans was never just an introspective ballad pianist (which became his stereotype), he does play with some unaccustomed ferocity on several of these selections. The 71 minutes of music feature strong versions of three of Evans' originals (including "Turn Out the Stars") plus a dozen standards, highlighted by "You're Gonna Hear From Me," "Gone With the Wind" and the unlikely "California Here I Come." Well worth searching for. In September 2004, Verve reissued the album in a limited edition, 24-bit remastered CD. Where the original disc sounded thin in places — as it is a live recording — the remastered version sounds consistently full and warm throughout.

bill evans created some great things and this is an example of it

timeless trio

You will not be disappointed with this CD. You really have to hear the rhythm section of philly joe & eddie gomez together, laying down a timeless sound together with Bill that sounds like it was recorded just yesterday. I have to admit I was really into philly joe on the Miles Davis albums of the sixties, I think he really solidifies the chemistry on this CD. Enjoy.

g waltz is so beautiful. as a beginning jazz pianist, i can really appreciate bill's mastery - i highly recommend this! so lyrical and subtle and complicated...

With the passage of time, Bill Evans has become an entire school unto himself for pianists and a singular mood unto himself for listeners. There is no more influential jazz-oriented pianist — only McCoy Tyner exerts nearly as much pull among younger players and journeymen — and Evans has left his mark on such noted players as Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Brad Mehldau. Borrowing heavily from the impressionism of Debussy and Ravel, Evans brought a new, introverted, relaxed,...
