The 1961 Village Vanguard recordings would by the very last made by this formation of the Bill Evans Trio, with Scott LaFaro on bass, and Paul Motian on drums, as LaFaro would die soon after in a car crash, on July 6, 1961, at the age of 25. Evans, who loved LaFaro's playing, would take a long hiatus before forming a new trio. Presented here are the very best performances from that date, originally issued on the albums Sunday at the Village Vanguard (Riverside RLP9376) and Waltz for Debby (Riverside RLP9399). BILL EVANS, piano; SCOTT LaFARO , bass; PAUL MOTIAN, drums Live at the Village Vanguard, New York, June 25, 1961. "This is music which continues to provoke marvel and endless study." Richard Cook & Brian Morton Penguin Guide to Jazz "This trio is still widely regarded as his finest, largely because of the symbiotic interplay between its members. This is a great place to begin with Evans." Thom Jurek - AllMusic
