Description

These recordings capture the trios at the height of Evans’s foray into leading a trio that listened and responded to each other rather than the supportive musicians leaning back and accompanying the piano.

In summary, it’s much more than a ‘completists only’ package – Evans fans will find plenty of interest, but so too will anyone with even just a passing interest in Evans and the possibilities of the piano trio. I would never pretend to be an Evans scholar, or even expert, but I am an unabashed fan who loves the man's playing and writing; so every release from the endlessly capacious Evans vaults is eagerly awaited chez moi. As a user, I have always admired Bill Evans' ability to evoke emotions through his playing, and the "Treasures" album is a testament to this prowess.

Evans seems not to distinguish between notes and chords; they are all a means of expression and reflections of each other.On some of his piano runs, Evans’ sounds like he has changed his mind and pursued another approach, but he makes it sound reasonable and planned. The performances with two different trios, two orchestras, and Evans solo at the piano all display his masterful musicianship and perceptive ears.

Not quite the epic versions of Nardis of Evans’s latter years (which could stretch to twice that length) but perhaps an indicator of what was to come. The beautifully designed triple gatefold LP set showcases previously unpublished photos by Jan Persson from Evans’ Danish tours, as well as insightful liner notes by acclaimed author, journalist and Evans scholar, Marc Myers, plus interviews and statements from Danish drummer Alex Riel, music journalist, Danish producer and Evans discographer Peter Larsen, Palle Mikkelborg, Evans’ longtime trio mates - bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Marty Morell, and pianists Ran Blake and Matthew Shipp. Obviously since I haven't heard the source material in its pure form, it might be unfair to say this but: just leave the tape hiss intact, already.

And so it is with these previously unissued ‘solo, trio and orchestra recordings from Denmark (1965–1969)’ on which all of those tunes appear plus a few other Evans favourites, with four versions of Time Remembered alone.

But Treasures: Solo, Trio and Orchestra Recordings from Denmark (1965-1969) is just getting started. In the orchestral version of ‘Time Remembered’, Evans’s piano pairs with the orchestra; the only difference is the timbre of individual instruments as they function as extensions of each other. In marked contrast is an unaccompanied solo set from Bill Evans (Copenhagen, November 1965), a fine blend of the introspective ballads one would expect of Evans with less expected moments of forceful swinging – even in the same tune, such as on a brisk version of My Funny Valentine (a standard on which a lesser musician might have been tempted to wallow in sentimentality). Come Rain or Shine’ opens with a piano flourish so alive one almost doesn’t care whether the main melody ever arrives. It was the year in which Gomez started his long stint as Evans’s bassist, but it sounds almost as if Gomez is the leader, Evans often happy to make space for a bass solo straight after the head and Riel largely in the background – although quite prominent on a relatively short Nardis that closes the set.

From your date of purchase your product is warranted against faulty materials or workmanship for a period of 12 months. Treasures is a feast for the ears and can serve as either a reminder of or an introduction to Evans’s musical depth and vision. The six unaccompanied piano pieces from November 1969 are a wonderful bonus and give an indication of where Evans’ head was at the time (in a good place, on this evidence) – and the version of ‘My Funny Valentine’ is just killer. For me, there’s something slightly vexing about hearing a jazz pianist backed by an orchestra of this size, if only because I struggle to hear the loose interplay to which I’m accustomed.

NHØP was only nineteen at the time of the recording, but precociously talented; and as bassist for the house band of Copenhagen’s Montmartre Jazzhus, he’d built his chops playing with several visiting US stars (even playing with Bud Powell when only sixteen).

As a compilation of his finest recordings, it immerses listeners in the magic of Evans' piano playing and provides a privileged insight into his creative world. type": "paragraph"}, {"id": "Ebt7JZHhcN", "data": {"text": "The beautifully designed triple gatefold LP set showcases previously unpublished photos by Jan Persson from Evans' Danish tours, as well as insightful liner notes by acclaimed author, journalist and Evans scholar, Marc Myers, plus interviews and statements from Danish drummer Alex Riel, music journalist, Danish producer and Evans discographer Peter Larsen, Palle Mikkelborg, Evans' long- time trio-mates - bassist Eddie Gomezand drummer Marty Morell, and pianists Ran Blakeand Matthew Shipp. Evans’s chord choices at the end echo the orchestra’s opening well before giving way to its symphonic closing.
