On this seven-song LP, Bill Evans made his debut on electric piano, usually playing it in conjunction with his acoustic piano. Joined by bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Marty Morell, Evans performs seven of his stronger originals including "Funkallero," "The Two Lonely People," "Re: Person I Knew," "T.T.T.," and "Waltz for Debby." Although not as distinctive on the electric keyboard as he was on its acoustic counterpart, Evans sounds inspired by its possibilities and is heard in top creative form throughout the date.
Sugar Plum is stupendous
I don't know about the rest but "Sugar Plum" is one of the best pieces of music I've ever heard.
One of the Best
I'm collecting all Bill Evans LPs but this one is special, using the Rhodes (electic Piano) add another dimention that is mellow and fluied. just impressive
This has got to be one of the best jazz CD's . First heard of Bill Evans on"Kind Of Blue"...was hooked & had to search for some of his own. This is his best of the two he recorded for the Columbia label. Amazing piano player.
