Bill Evans (Piano): Alone [Limited Edition]

Album Notes

Solo performer: Bill Evans (piano).

Recorded at Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California from December 16-18, 1975. Includes liner notes by John L. Wasserman.

Digitally remastered by Phil de Lancie (1993, Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California).

Bill Evans was at his best playing solo piano; his touch, harmonic and rhythmic creativity, phrasing, and total technique were so accomplished that he needed ideal accompanists to excel in any trio or group situation. But when playing unaccompanied, he was free to explore any and all directions, developing and exploiting them without concern about other musicians following, fitting in, or expanding the territory behind or underneath him. There were only five cuts on this 1975 date, and the superb CD remastering illuminates Evans' brilliant solos. It offers a textbook example of how Evans opened, developed, and finished a composition; he examined it to the utmost, explored multiple options with flair, then concluded it in spectacular fashion. ~ Ron Wynn
