Review by Barb October 27, 2007 (6 of 6 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
B. Evans p, C. Israels b, P. Motian ds, Riverside 1962.
Playing all ballad material this is a very contemplative record. It`s slow and gentle music for relaxing or the opposite, listening with close attention to every nuance this trio brings to life. The interplay of the three is fantastic and makes this melancholic music thrilling, grabbing you. Slow sophistication. If you are in the mood for that, this one`s perfect. The sound is good, rich of colour, good soundstage and imaging, air for the instruments to breath, dynamic, brilliant. Analogue Productions did a great job here, again.

Performance:   Sonics:
There is a storyline running through this and the other two Evans album - also reviewed here - that provides depth to the music. It's of course about LaFaro, but there is more. When Bill Evans does ballads I always feel he is talking, and that takes listening to him to a different level. It's not only a fine flowing, elegant piano piece - but let's not forget the sensitive contributions of Chuck Israels on bass and Paul Motian on drums. It has that something extra that is difficult to put into words. It invites you to really listen and it takes the ballad out of the realm of background music.

Analogue Productions has produced some of the best sounding piano on SA-CD, and this one is no exception. If you want to listen to Bill Evans' story you owe it to yourself to buy all three discs ('Saturday At The Village Vanguard' and 'Waltz For Debbie' are the other two).
