Bill Evans Trio: The Legendary (CD: Cherry Red, 3 CDs)
"Bill had this quiet fire that I loved on piano. The way he approached it, the sound he got was like crystal notes or sparkling water cascading down from some clear waterfall." (Miles Davis).

Bill Evans co-wrote 'Kind Of Blue' with Miles Davis and is regarded by many as the most influential jazz pianist of his generation. The trio he formed in 1959 with the brilliant, ill-fated young bassist Scott LaFaro and drummer Paul Motion is surely as fine as any in jazz history.

This three-disc box set edition comprises almost everything this Evans trio recorded; The two miraculous studio albums, 'Portrait In Jazz' and 'Explorations'; the intimate live sets recorded in New York in the summer of 1961, 'Sunday Night At The Village Vanguard' and 'Waltz For Debby'. These masterpieces are complimented by the Birdland sessions - an earlier musical document of the trio in an authentic club setting - with disc three completed by the their first recordings together, with the jazz clarinettist Tony Scott; for the album 'Sung Heroes', his homages to Billie Holiday and the trumpeter "Hot Lips" Page.

Bill Evans Trio: Waltz For Debby (CD: Riverside)
Evans' finest and most lucid trio with Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian was cruelly cut short by the bassist's death in an automobile accident just ten days after this live set was taped. Capturing them at the height of their powers, 'Waltz' and the 'Vanguard' discs originate from the same (beautifully recorded) concerts in June 1961 and showcase the pianist's gentle, almost classical fingers (the opening of the title tune sounds almost like a John Ireland prelude) and LaFaro's electrifying elastic bass lines. Evans subsequently went on to form various groups, few with the empathy or expression of this one.

Bill Evans Trio: Time Remembered (CD: Milestone- US Import)
Evans (1929-1980) remains the most influential improvising pianist of the past 40 years, for his exquisite sound, dreamlike chord voicings, deep song balladry, and singular conception of rhythmic displacement. This set contains five solo piano pieces, four of which are from the April 1962 date that marked Evans's return to the studio following the sudden death in July 1961 of the brilliant 25-year-old bassist Scott LaFaro, the pianist's closest collaborator. The remainder of the program was done in May 1963, live at the fondly remembered Hollywood club Shelly's Manne-Hole, and featured his highly underrated trio including bassist Chuck Israels and drummer Larry Bunker. With cohesive, if typically understated, support, Evans, as was his wont, brings song-form improvisation to the pinnacle of communication. (Fantasy, Inc.)

In his original notes for this 1968 solo recital, Bill Evans wrote of achieving a "sense of oneness while playing alone." Alone was the first album to capture that "sense of oneness" in all its haunting beauty -- the first to consist of nothing but Evan's piano, unaccompanied by other musicians or even by overdubs. Entirely remastered from the original four-track session reels for the first time, this reissue contains seven bonus tracks from the Alone sessions, six of them recently discovered and never previously released.

'Another Time: The Hilversum Concert' is a rare, never-before-issued recording of the legendary Bill Evans trio featuring Eddie Gomez on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums, captured live at the Netherlands Radio Union Studios in Hilversum on June 22, 1968.

This is only the third known recording in existence of this particular trio, who only performed together as a trio for a six month period in 1968, and was originally recorded and broadcast on the radio program Jazz in Actie by Dutch producer Joop de Roo. For the audiophile, this is possibly the best sounding live recording of Bill Evans found to date, captured with the then state of the art equipment of the NRU, and kept in pristine condition over the years.

On the heels of 2016's landmark Evans discovery, 'Some Other Time: The Lost Session from the Black Forest', which was recorded a mere two days prior to this Hilversum date in 1968, Resonance has struck gold again with yet another unearthed gem from the iconic pianist Bill Evans.

This deluxe CD is being officially released in conjunction with the Bill Evans estate and the musicians, and features rare photos, essays by Dutch jazz journalist Bert Vuijsje, producer Zev Feldman, plus interviews with Eddie Gomez, Jack DeJohnette and more!
