Album Review

What's better than a Bill Evans Trio album? How about a Bill Evans trio album on which the bassist is Percy Heath, the drummer is Connie Kay, and the leader is not Evans but alto sax god Cannonball Adderley, making the group actually a quartet? It's a different sort of ensemble, to be sure, and the musical results are marvelous. Adderley's playing on "Waltz for Debby" is both muscular and sensitive, as it is on the other Evans composition here, a modal ballad called "Know What I Mean?" Other treats include the sprightly "Toy" and two takes of the Gershwin classic "Who Cares?" The focus here is, of course, on Adderley's excellent post-bop stylings, but it's also interesting to hear Evans playing with a rhythm section as staid and conservative as Kay and Heath (both charter members of the Modern Jazz Quartet). It's hard to imagine any fan of mainstream jazz not finding much to love on this very fine recording.

Customer Reviews

GREAT Combination!

This is not Bill Evans' greatest album, but it is not intended to be. This one is all about Cannonball, and he is terrific! The album starts with a truly swinging arrangement of Evans' best-known tune, "Waltz for Debby", and doesn't let up. Great stuff!

they make it sound so easy

i disagree - this may be one of evans' best lps and makes one mourn the fact percy heath was not his regular bassist. it is evans at his early, subtle, swingingest best - so much better than his lamented late period when he started to bang the piano and play way too many notes. and cannonball - flawless, gorgeous.

awesome

im a long time lover of cannonballs music, an i think he really hit the spot on this one. be sure to check out Who Cares?, Toy, and Nancy(with the laghing face). enjoy!

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s

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,...
