Description

The Quiet Passion of Bill Evans is a three-disc box set anthology of collaborations, guest sessions and classic trio recordings made during the meteoric first seven years of the career of this extraordinary, internationally renowned, pianist.

. Throughout the set, and in an eclectic range of musical contexts, we hear the sensitive, lyrical playing that placed Evans firmly amongst the all-time jazz greats; including sessions for such legends as Charles Mingus, Cannonball Adderley, Chet Baker, Michel Legrand, Helen Merrill and the Danish trombonist Kai Winding; for progressive composer / arrangers such as George Russell, Earl Zindars, Bill Potts, Oliver Nelson and Tadd Dameron, and in collaboration with technicians of the calibre of Jim Hall, Freddie Hubbard, Shelly Manne and Bob Brookmeyer.

. Then Blue in Green, an exquisite Evans contribution to Miles Davis' monumental 'A Kind of Blue', and finally some of the deepest of musical statements in the elegant Scott LaFaro and Chick Israels incarnations of the Bill Evans Trio; one of the most influential of all jazz ensembles, led by the most complete musician of our time.
