Newly unearthed studio session from the iconic pianist Bill Evans,' Some Other Time: The Lost Session from The Black Forest' is a landmark discovery for jazz listeners around the world.

This Bill Evans trio session was recorded on June 20, 1968, nearly 10 years after the legendary Kind of Blue sessions with Miles Davis, and five days after the famous live performance at the 1968 Montreux Jazz Festival, which was released on Verve and won a Grammy. This is the only studio album recorded of this trio and features Evans in trio, duo and solo configurations with jazz greats bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jack DeJohnette.

The album album was recorded by the renowned MPS Records producer and label owner, Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer, at his studio in Villingen, Germany (aka "the Black Forest"). Originally produced by HGBS. It's only the second official Bill Evans release with Eddie Gomez and Jack DeJohnette.

Liner notes to include new historical essays from jazz journalist Marc Myers and German jazz historian Friedhelm Schulz, interviews from Eddie Gomez, Jack DeJohnette and other musicians, Plus, rare and previously unpublished photos.

Available as a deluxe 2-CD set and limited edition 2-LP set on 180-gram vinyl, mastered by Bernie Grundman. The last Bill Evans release from Resonance, 2012's Live at Art D'Lugoff's Top of The Gate, has sold over 30,000 copies worldwide.
