Bill Evans, Live at Art D'Lugoff's: Top of the Gate
2012 | Label: Resonance Records / The Orchard

This previously unreleased material was recorded for Columbia University radio station WKCR; the sound balance, done on the fly through microphone placement, attains professional quality by the third track. Of course, there are a lot of Evans concert recordings; when one of the most influential pianists of an era dies young, everything he recorded becomes instantly treasured. The preciousness alone justifies this two-CD package, but it stands just as firmly on its particular merits. Unlike… read more »

An insult to the genius and touch of Bill Evans

Caponsacchi

This is by far the worst recording of Bill Evans' genius, despite hype that led to my purchase of the entire album. The inferior audio is not only disappointing: it's disheartening that listeners have so little discrimination about how a piano should sound. 7 years earlier Bill and Scott LaFaro recorded the live session, "Sunday at the Village Vanguard," which has since been elevated to canonical status, exceeding the reputation of any other jazz piano trio album. By comparison, this latest release is a sonic train wreck. The tones "bleed" together, producing an ugly "smudge," the ensembles rendered a jumbled mess. Downloiad 2 songs from this latest release--"Autumn Leaves" and "Witchcraft." Next compare both to the same tracks from the 1960 "Portrait in Jazz." Now be thankful you didn't pay up to 80 bucks for this travesty.

Bill Frisell’s Pan-Americana

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

Bill Frisell, the singular and much admired/emulated jazz guitarist, is a case study in uncategorizability. As he's often said, in one form or another: First I was tagged as the ECM guy, then the downtown guy, then the Americana guy. In reality, those were all always the same guy. As early as the 1982 recordings for his debut on ECM, In Line - solos, overdubbed solos and duets with bassist Arild Andersen - there was this odd… more »

Fred Hersch: The Lives of a Cat

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

The pianist heard on the newly released 2001 solo recital Fred Hersch Plays Jobim may be the best-known Fred Hersch: a consummate player of lyrical ballads, enriching their melodies and chords in subtle ways. He's a master of singing right-hand lines and impressionist harmonies that recede into the distance. Antonio Carlos Jobim composed classics like "Desafinado," "Corcovado" and "Insensatez" which helped make bossa nova a '60s fad, when he teamed up with saxophonist Stan Getz.… more »
