Jazziz (1/95, p.89) - "...Evans was a one-of-a kind musician who took standards and made them his own...There is more feeling in that unmistakable Evans style than in any of the myriad technical doo-dad oriented players we get saddled with today..."

Jazziz (1/95, p.89) - "...a one-of-a-kind musician who took standards and made them his own...There is more feeling in that Unmistakable Evans style than in any of the...players we get saddled with today. It's uncanny what DCC has done to the sound of this disc--nothing could have sounded that good 35 years ago..."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The album redefined jazz trio music and features his own rendition of the meditative 'Blue In Green'..."

An indisputable jazz classic, Bill Evans's PORTRAIT IN JAZZ was originally released in 1959, issued on CD in the early `90s, then remastered and re-released in 2008. The crisp remastering is a joy, and brings the glorious music made by the legendary pianist and his trio into sharp, gorgeous relief. Evans's treatments of standards and classics such as "Come Rain or Come Shine," "Witchcraft," and "Someday My Prince Will Come" are startling and moving, but it's the originals--"Peri's Scope" and the seminal "Blue in Green"--that stand out.
