The net result was two excellent additions to the Evans catalog.
Bill Evans's return to full activity in 1962 came almost a year after his celebrated trio recordings at the Village Vanguard.
Bill Evans was left reeling by the accidental death of his brilliant bassist Scott LaFaro in mid-1961 and didn't feel ready to record with his new bassist until nearly a year later.
In 1956, Bill Evans was virtually unknown (it would be more than a year before he first gained notice as part of the celebrated Miles Davis Sextet.)
One of the two most important associations in the early development of the incredible talent of Bill Evans was undoubtedly his nine-month 1958 stay with the Miles Davis Sextet that also included John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley.
Few albums in the history of contemporary American music can be more deserving than this one of the designation OJC.
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 15, 1961.
Evans is not only a pianist who should become a jamor contributor, he already has arrived as a man to dig now". One that will never be not on the scene no matter what the year. A must for all up and coming Jazz players alike.
