Booklet Distinctions The Qobuz Standard
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

Hi-Res
Take some time. And love. An ambitious agenda that Sophie Alour carves in the marble of an album dedicated to ballads. Particularly ballads authored by Gershwin, Cole Porter and Jerome Kern, masterpieces performed by Shirley Horn, Joni Mitchell, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone. Supported by the talent of Rhoda Scott, Alain Jean-Marie, André Ceccarelli, Glenn Ferris, Stéphane Belmondo and David El Malek (here in charge of the art direction), as well as a wind quintet arranged by François Théberge, the saxophonist shows her most sensitive and expressive side. And even with classics that have been played thousands of times such as I Loves You, Porgy and Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye, Sophie Alour manages to make her voice heard. All the more difficult since it measures itself against the human voice. A risky but successful gamble. © MD/Qobuz
