Portrait In Jazz

Description

Limited edition classic LP, reissued on 180g vinyl, audiophile pressing.

Portrait in Jazz was Bill Evans' third album as a leader, following New Jazz Conceptions (1956) and Everybody Digs Bill Evans (1958). It was also Evans' first studio album with his legendary trio, featuring Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian.

The repertoire here consists of standards (all of them treated in Evans' very personal style) plus two originals, "Peri's Scope" premiered on Portrait in Jazz, and "Blue in Green," which was co-composed by Miles Davis. Bill first recorded the latter composition in March 1959 with Miles for the classic album, Kind of Blue.
