Se ainda estivesse vivo Bill Evans (1929-1980) faria 75 anos a 16 de Agosto. Atrasados uma semana, mas aqui deixamos a nossa homenagem.
Alguns destes everybody, como se pode ver pela capa, foram Miles Davis, George Shearing, Ahmad Jamal (pianista também) e Julian "Cannonball" Adderley. Já agora incluam-me também!
«The legend of Bill Evans really begins with this album, his second. The pianist had just spent most of 1958 as part of one of the major units in jazz history: the Miles Davis sextet that also featured John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley. His fellow musicians already knew his worth (the album title was almost literally acurate, and the four endorsements on the cover, which embarrassed Bill, could easily have been greatly multiplied); with this record jazz public began to follow their lead. Aided by Sam Jones and Philly Joe Jones, Evans set down some of his most swinging trio sides, but the session would be memorable if it had only yielded the remarkable and haunting solo improvisation called "Peace Piece". » - da contracapa deste CD. Também gosto muito do "Night & day" é pretty pretty.
