Review: ------- Bill Evans Trio: Bill Evans (piano); Scott LaFaro (bass); Paul Motian (drums).
Recorded live at the Village Vanguard, New York, New York on June 25, 1961. Originally released on Riverside (9399). Includes liner notes by Joe Goldberg.
Recorded on the same night as Sunday At The Village Vanguard, WALTZ FOR DEBBY captures one of the most important and well-integrated piano trios in the history of jazz, working on a superbly inspired night. It is clear, listening to this record, that bassist Scott Lafaro had a very special rapport with Evans, and drummer Paul Motian's subtle, improvised accompaniments and eccentric, quirkily quiet swing was the perfect engine for this subtle, impressionistic pianist. Check out the lovely, gentle "My Foolish Heart," and the lively "Milestones" and, of course, "Waltz For Debby.
