The Bill Evans Trio – Waltz For Debby (Riverside)
Condition: Brand New
Ships from: Melbourne
This is the second of two Riverside albums made up of selections recorded by the classic Bill Evans / Scott LaFaro / Paul Motian trio at their legendary live recording session of June 25, 1961 Although originally issued a half-year later than Sunday at the Village Vanguard this was by no means an afterthought collection of lesser items: Evans and producer Orrin Keepnews had immediately recognised that there was more than enough material for two top-level records. The dozen chosen performances were subdivided to enable the first album released to feature LaFaro-who had died in an auto accident just ten days after recording. Thus, this second collection can fairly be said to present a more typical overview of this remarkable unit at work.
