Just three months before his death, pianist BIll Evans was extensively recorded at the Village Vanguard. Originally, one or two LPs were to be released featuring his brilliant new trio (with bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Joe LaBarbera), but after the innovative pianist's death, the project was stalled for over 15 years. Finally, when Warner Bros. got around to it, a definitive six-CD box set was released (although unfortunately in limited-edition form). Evans sounded quite energized during his last year, Johnson was developing quickly as both an accompanist and a soloist, and the interplay by the trio members (with subtle support from LaBarbera) sometimes bordered on the telepathic. The playing throughout these consistently inventive performances ranks up there with the Evans-Scott LaFaro-Paul Motian trio of 20 years earlier. ~ Scott Yanow

Bill Evans does perform solo on occasion--sometimes solo with himself. In years past, through the modern miracle of "multi-tracking" (overdubbing), Evans recorded two classic albums of solos where he "accompanies" himself: the Grammy-winning CONVERSATIONS WITH MYSELF and its follow-up, FURTHER CONVERSATIONS WITH MYSELF. In 1978, he recorded another, NEW CONVERSATIONS, on acoustic and electric pianos. It's a beautiful set, with crystaline recording quality. The program is the usual mix of Evans originals and standards. There's the heartbreakingly rhapsodic original "Remembering the Rain," the reserved yet buoyant swing of Cole Porter's "After You," the tender, affectionate ballad "For Nenette" (the late Evans' wife) and the oft-recorded "Nobody Else But Me" features a lyrical (what else?) and whimsical duo between his acoustic and luminous electric piano. If one Bill Evans isn't enough for you, NEW CONVERSATIONS ought to more-than-satisfy your craving.

Ray Bryant has long been a well-rounded and versatile yet distinctive pianist. His style, modern compared to the swing and stride players but traditional when matched against the boppers, is flexible enough to fit into many settings. This solo outing finds Bryant playing swing standards, blues, soulful versions of a couple of current pop tunes and even a bit of boogie. This LP's only fault is that it is out of print. ~ Scott Yanow
