"Waltz for Debby" has always been my favorite, if I may butt in. Then again that is pretty much the only Bill Evans album that has clicked with me thus far, and I have about half a dozen of his albums.

It's a really good album, and Monica is amazing!

The Complete Village Vanguard recordings 1961 would be a nice start..or Portrait of Jazz... 

 

Personally I like Bill Evans work from the sixties best, I don't react well to electronic bass in Jazz trio's..:o

 

Also Explorations and Undercurrent (with gitarist Jim Hall) is very good IMO  if you like sax, the album with Cannonball Aderley ('Know What I Mean') is very good..

 

Good luck :L3000:

 

 

 

There are relative cheap (verbatim) cd boxes of all the complete Riverside (15 cd's) /and Verve recordings (18 cd's) which are all great..

 

...  and 'Everybody Diggs Bill Evans' of course..

Listening to some Bill Evans today - I got a download of Exploration's. Does anyone one know if he wrote the song Nardis. I ask this because Patricia Barber also has a track on her "Cafe Blue" album with the same name. I'm wondering is it a standard or are the 2 songs completely unrelated? 

 

By the way, the percussion's on the first track - "Israel" - wow :eek: 

 

Paul Motian very nice stuff sir. Very tasteful

Nardis is a Miles Davis tune, but I don't believe he recorded it himself..don't know why.. I listened to the Patricia Barber's Nardis on Youtube, doesn't sound familiar at first hearing, sounds boring :D

 

I listen to Bill Evans for years, but he really got to me lately..he's special  when you get to know the tunes and you hear the other live versions, you'll get to appreciate his creativity and his genius in harmonics..

I like it as well. It might even be my favorite Barber song.

Did you get around to hearing her album yet? It's called "womanchild". 

 

 

Unfortunately this is not on that album but hopefully she will put it on her new one. I really love this track. Amazing drumming from Laurence Leathers!

Have always been a Charles Lloyd fan.  First saw him with Cannonball Adderley Sextet back around 1964-65 (revealing my age) along with Louis Hayes and Joe Zawinul back in Philly when the city was a hotbed of Jazz.  

 

If you can, get a copy of his Athens Concert with Maria Farantouri on ECM (2011).
