The only question is which is better, this or Waltz For Debby, a question that need not be addressed. They are both landmarks. Evans' phasing, harmonies and rhythm are all here with this, the best of his trios on one of the best iive albums of all time.
Mr.Champions
Did I mention that I love live recordings of jazz? There is something very special about the space, the hushed background conversations, and the instruments breathing in all of this ambiance. This album by Evans is absolutely amazing from the very first note. Evans, of course, first popped up on my radar in this #1001Albums journey after appearing on Miles Davis' "Kind Of Blue", and now his modal traversing of the keyboard is accompanied by a like-minded bass player on the deep strings, and the shuffling brushes of the drums. In this trio no single instrument is apparent to take on a solo role, and it's the conversation between the three that seems nearly telepathic, unimaginable to be reproduced ever again. Unfortunately, the bassist, Scott LaFaro, was killed in a car accident only ten days after this session, and thus the album serves more like a homage to the passing star. And thus this trio ended. But the anthology lives on, with some of the best material showcasing LaFaro's picked out from the five recording sessions and prominently featured on the album, which also serves as a companion volume to "Waltz for Debby" (so combining both for a single listening is highly recommended). There's also a 3xCD boxset issued by Riverside in 2006, if you're brave enough. Personally, because of all the introductions and even interrupted takes, I think it's totally worth it! It's like you're there with Evans and his trio. And that's the beauty of it live!
Peras
Taken from the same sessions as "Waltz for Debby", these were last recording of bassist Scott LaFaro who died 10 days later. He is fairly prominent here. This is a highly regarded recording, and I can see why as the playing is excellent. Both members of the rhythm section get more of the limelight than on their studio releases, especially LaFaro. This is essential in any Bill Evans collection, and not out of place in any Jazz collection - Like all his work, it's all very laid back, and fairly cerebral, It doesn't make you work hard, but careful listening is recommended, along with it's sister album "Waltz for Debby".
Eseve
This is clearly an album jazz musicians and critics adore, and Evans' intellectualism, technical prowess, and focus on innovation are all very present. Unfortunately, I'm not a major fan of post-war jazz piano (with the exceptions of Monk, Brubeck, and Tyner), at least not as the lead instrument. To me, bassist Scott Lafaro somewhat steals the show, driving the songs along both rhythmically and emotionally. He also composed what is arguably the record's best moment, "Gloria's Step." After that opening track, the music felt a bit monotonous to me, once again because modern jazz piano does not interest me all that much in general. Simply put, it bores my ears. Perhaps that is a sign of my own limitations as a listener, but I was not moved by this music and likely will not be giving the album another listen, certainly not in its entirety.
