Album Review

The recording date of this solo outing by pianist Bill Evans has been listed as both September 1968 and December 1969; the latter seems the more logical entry. This is Evans' final Verve album. He plays five long solos (including a fourteen-and-a-half -minute exploration of "Never Let Me Go"). The repertoire includes "Here's That Rainy Day," "A Time for Love," "Midnight Mood," and "On a Clear Day." This set is recommended to Bill Evans completists who already have many of his other recordings.

who does these reviews? can we stop letting the people who think the Ramones are the greatest band in the history of music review the jazz albums? please?

A gem of an album

Contrary to the primary review of this album, I thoroughly enjoyed the 14 1/2 minute version of Never Let Me Go and agree with Mr. Evan's own liner notes that such a long exploration reinvents the meaning of the phrase "solo piano." He takes his time with multiple choruses that offer fresh perspectives and emotion, without the distraction of an audience (listening or having dinner). As well, Here's That Rainy Day delves deeply into the harmonic possibilites when in the hands of a true genious. So, rest assured that there is much to enjoy here for any range of listener.

An excellent collection of solo piano work

Although some contend that a few of these tracks may be rambling, it seems more that they are just expertly developed by this harmonic craftsman. I also disagree that this is an uninspired group of songs. They are merely songs that sound good in the solo piano format. Midnight Mood, especially, is one of my favorites and is covered 2 1/2 times on this album alone.

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, lyrical,...
