Bill Evans - Peace Pieces (featuring Cannonball Adderley)
(Riverside / ABC (USA) Stereo LP RS 3042, originally recorded between 1958-1963)
An Evans compilation originally issued in 1969, this album has various lineups from the halcyon Riverside days playing an all-Evans programme. Tracks include "Interplay", "Waltz For Debby", Know What I Mean?", Peace Piece", "Show Type Tune", "Very Early", and "Re: Person I Knew". The bass duties are equally split between Chuck Israels and Percy Heath, while the drumming duties fall on Connie Kay, 'Philly' Joe Jones and Paul Motian.This also has two tracks from the 'Cannonball' Adderley album "Know What I Mean?" (see my other listings for this album), and the title track ("Interplay") from a great date featuring Freddie Hubbard, trumpet, and Jim Hall, guitar, along with the aforementioned 'Philly' Joe Jones (see my other listings for this album). This 1969 ABC Riverside compilation, shows that four years had gone by since Riverside had gone bankrupt, and the label still hadn't found a permanent home. This was later rectified when Fantasy Records assumed ownership, which is still in force today, I think (see my listing for "Interplay", which Fantasy reissued on vinyl in 1987). historically valuable and many of Evans' key compositions in one album.
