Bill Evans Trio - Everybody Digs Bill Evans
(Riverside (USA) Monaural LP RLP 12-291, recorded in 1958)
This is a very special Evans album featuring the great bassist Sam Jones, with 'Philly' Joe Jones on drums. 'Philly' worked with Evans in the Miles Davis band, while Sam Jones has provided sturdy bass for a myriad of other groups, including 'Cannonball' Adderley (see my other listings). The selections here include Evans original "Peace Piece", but they play mostly standards here ("Young And Foolish", "Night And Day", "Tenderly", as well as jazz originals (Sonny Rollins'"Oleo", Evans's "Epilogue"). Evans plays with gusto, urged on by this supreme rhythm section.
