A Lively, Experimental Set from Bill Evans!
Bill Evans at the Montreux Jazz Festival is a 1968 album by the American jazz
pianist Bill Evans, recorded live at that year's Montreux Jazz Festival. The
trio's performance on this album won them the 1969 Grammy for Best Jazz
Instrumental Album, Individual or Group. On this release, Bill Evans is joined by Eddie Gomez on double bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums.
Bill Evans was an American jazz pianist and composer who mostly worked in a trio
setting. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest jazz pianists of all
time, and is considered by some to have been the most influential post-World War
II jazz pianist. Evans's use of impressionist harmony, inventive interpretation
of traditional jazz repertoire, block chords, and trademark rhythmically
independent, "singing" melodic lines continue to influence jazz pianists today.
"Evans, famous for a soft-spoken pianistic touch, seems driven to new vistas
on this album. He experiments more with harmonic dissonance and striking
rhythmical contrasts, making this his most extroverted playing since his
freshman release, New Jazz Conceptions." -Rovi Staff, allmusic.com
SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes
the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further
enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed
for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency,
players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which
enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution
format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high
resolution format such as SACD.
