Performer: Bill Evans (Piano)
Notes: Personnel: Bill Evans (piano); Larry Bunker, Paul Motian (drums). Recording information: Birdland, NY (02/10/1962/02/13/1965); Maison De L'ORTF, Paris, France (02/10/1962/02/13/1965). Photographer: David Redfern. Pianist Bill Evans led quite an assortment of trios during the '60s and '70s. Derived from a radio broadcast of a performance at the Maison de l'ORTF in Paris on February 13, 1965, "The Bill Evans Trio Live in Paris" is a marvelous portrait of the group that featured bassist Chuck Israels and drummer Larry Bunker. Israels takes a particularly colorful solo during "Nardis" and Evans pours unusual amounts of energy and expressivity into Irving Berlin's "How Deep Is the Ocean?" The producers of this reissue added three fascinating bonus tracks which were also recorded off of a live radio transmission, this time emanating from Birdland in New York on February 10, 1962 with Paul Motian handling the drums and Symphony Sid Torin emceeing. This superb compact disc is filled to the brim with exquisitely well performed modern jazz of a predominately cool nature; it is very accessible and consistently inventive. ~ arwulf arwulf
One of the most original and influential pianists in jazz, Bill Evans possessed an intensely personal and lyrical approach. The release of his first records under his own name, as well as his appearance on Miles Davis's KIND OF BLUE, pushed Evans rapidly to the forefront of jazz piano. For much of his career--which began in the 1950s and spanned several decades--he worked exclusively with his own trios, which brought collective interplay to new heights and extended the vocabulary of post-bop jazz piano.
