Bill Evans - At The Montreux Jazz Festival
(200g Vinyl LP)
200g Vinyl LP Reissue of 1969 Grammy Winner Mastered from the Original Tapes by Bernie Grundman and Manufactured at Quality Record Pressings!
Bill Evans - flanked by bassist Eddie Gomez and his drummer of the period Jack DeJohnette (just prior to him joining Miles Davis) - is in excellent form on this equally brooding and bright 1968 live date At The Montreux Jazz Festival. Evans performs two of his originals (including "One for Helen" which was dedicated to his longtime manager Helen Keane), Denny Zeitlin's "Quiet Now," Earl Zindars' "Mother of Earl" and a few of his favorite standards, tunes that are generally ballads and harmonically rich.
The interplay between Evans and Gomez was growing month-by-month (the bassist had been with him for almost two years at this point) and is the main reason to acquire this Grammy Award-winning collection although DeJohnette (the only album to document his too-short stay in the trio) certainly offers up some stimulating support here as well. The proceedings sound as radiant as ever on this super-silent 200-gram vinyl LP reissue from Analogue Productions mastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tapes and manufactured at Quality Record Pressings.
