Autumn Leaves - (mono take, bonus track) Producer: Orrin Keepnews Distributor: Dunhill Compact Classics Recording type: Studio Recording mode: Stereo Bill Evans Trio: Bill Evans (piano); Scott LaFaro (bass); Paul Motian (drums). Recorded at Reeves Sound Studios, New York, New York on December 28, 1959. Originally released on Riverside (1162). Includes liner notes by Orrin Keepnews. Bassist Scott LaFaro and drummer Paul Motian weren't Bill Evans' first trio partners (they replaced non-brothers Sam and Philly Joe Jones), nor were they his longest-lasting (the lineup lasted barely 18 months). Nevertheless, the Evans-LaFaro-Motian partnership became the yardstick by which all future jazz piano trios were to be measured. Their astonishing collective improvisation, best heard on two takes each of the standard "Autumn Leaves" and the Evans-Miles Davis collaboration "Blue In Green" (first heard on Davis' epochal KIND OF BLUE), demonstrates the remarkable intuition of this trio. Here Evans, LaFaro and Motian play as with a single guiding consciousness, which makes these moody, low-key renditions of popular favorites ("Witchcraft," "When I Fall In Love," "Someday My Prince Will Come") sound as fresh as the pair of Evans originals. This may well be the archetypal piano trio recording. Editorial reviews ...a one-of-a-kind musician who took standards and made them his own...There is more feeling in that Unmistakable Evans style than in any of the...players we get saddled with today. It's uncanny what DCC has done to the sound of this disc--nothing could have sounded that good 35 years ago... Jazziz (01/01/1995) 5 Stars - Excellent - ...If there's any doubt that Evans is one of the freshest things to happen to the piano in the last few years, this album should dispel any such feelings...Here is an album with meaning--here is truth... Down Beat (01/01/1960)
