As part of Verve's For Lovers series, pianist Bill Evans is spotlighted on 11 tracks recorded between 1962 and 1970. This romantic set of standards aptly highlights Evans' melancholic light touch, especially on "But Beautiful," "Spring Is Here," "My Foolish Heart," "Lover Man," and "If You Could See Me Now." Stan Getz, Ron Carter, Elvin Jones, Shelly Manne, Gary Peacock, Paul Motian, and Eddie Gomez are a few of the impressive guest musicians who make appearances. While this certainly doesn't come close to painting a complete picture of Bill Evans' career, which spanned several decades, it does make a nice sampler for the novice at a mid-line price.
