The fullness of this duet album's sound suffers only slightly from the lack of a drummer, compensating with deeply satisfying intuitive interplay between pianist Evans and longtime collaborator Gomez. Evans experiments on INTUITION with the electric Fender-Rhodes piano for his original tunes, "Show-Type Tune" and "Are You All the Things," but he is at his most assertive and polished when playing acoustic piano. Particular standouts are the two songs by Bronislau Kaper, the romantic ballad "Invitation," and, with particular care and expression, the theme "Hi Lili, Hi Lo," from the musical "Lili." Gomez is a full participant, using the bass the way he did as a member of the Bill Evans Trio, making himself an indispensable part of the equation. INTUITION is a strongly empathetic album which memorializes a deep musical connection between two jazz greats.
