Bill Evans & Jim Hall - Undercurrent
(United Artists (USA) Monaural LP UAJ 14003, recorded in 1962)
Bill Evans and Jim Hall play together almost telepathically on these tracks. Such standards as "My Funny Valentine", the standout track, and "Darn That Dream", sit happily on the disc with the unusual John Lewis original "Skating In Central Park" and the rarely heard "Dream Gypsy". And all this in a package which just has to be one of the great album covers. And for liner notes, the stream-of-consciousness "Wait Quickly" by Barry J, Titus, dedicated to Bill and Jim, has to be the most convoluted rant since Jack Kerouac!
