"Bill Evans & Jim Hall, Undercurrent (Gate Fold Cover)"

Classic Analog LP Pressing. Pressing By United Artists Jazz. The music here is a sort of symbiotic improvisation between two master jazz giants at the peak of their creative power and maturity. The album is splendid, magic and evocative. I mean, two of the best impressionist musicians I know about, Jim Hall and Bill Evans .. consider that making a piano and a guitar work together it is absolutly not easy at it seems.The two instruments are both armonical and melodical and they stand both in the medium register so ... it's not easy, but these masters could do anything they would of course. You have to own Undercurrent. The music is so beautiful that owning this one is a must. The cover is really one of the most stunning record cover in the Jazz field. It is really a work of art. Now, without the titles on it, it is even better. I love it ... to death. The album more than repays the investment. One of the highlights is the up-tempo treatment of "My Funny Valentine" which, given its harmonies, makes complete musical sense. Thank goodness Blue Note thought to reissue the session (thankfully, too, capturing the sound of the piano was not left to Van Gelder). 1. My Funny Valentine 2. I Hear A Rhapsody 3. Dream Gypsy 4. Romain 5. Skating In Central Park 6. Darn That Dream 7. Stairway To The Stars 8. I'm Getting Sentimental Over You
