Overview

This CD compiles material previously issued on several different European releases, all of which likely came from radio broadcasts. Alto saxophonist Lee Konitz is an added guest for a long medley of standards, and the reunion between the two men, who had played together some in the past, works fairly well. The most intriguing track is the improvised "Blues in D," featuring a rotating cast of pianists: Earl Hines, Teddy Wilson, John Lewis, Lennie Tristano, Evans, and Jaki Byard, supported by Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen and Alan Dawson. Four songs come from a February concert with Chuck Israels and Larry Bunker, including a version of "Nardis" joined in progress and a thoughtful "'Round Midnight" that is marred by the noisy audience. The sound quality varies widely in this collection, but it is worth the investment in some form for its historic value to fans of Bill Evans.
