The Bill Evans Trio Waltz For Debby LP
TAS Audiophile Demo Disc!
This is the second of two Riverside albums made up of selections recorded by
the classic Bill Evans/Scott LaFaro/Paul Motian trio at their legendary live
recording session of June 25, 1961. Although originally issued a half-year later
than Sunday at the Village Vanguard, this was by no means an afterthought
collection of lesser items: Evans and producer Orrin Keepnews had immediately
recognized that there was more than enough material for two top-level records.
The dozen chosen performances were subdivided to enable the first album released
to feature LaFaro–who had died in an auto accident just ten days after
recording. Thus, this second collection can fairly be said to present a more
typical overview of this remarkable unit at work.
