Bill Evans & Jim Hall - Intermodulation
(Verve (UK) Stereo LP SVLP 9145 (American number V6 8655), recorded in 1966)
This is the second duet album made by Bill Evans, pianist, and Jim Hall, guitarist. Each contributes an original, Evans's "Turn Out The Stars" (dedicated to his father) and Hall's "All Across The City" being very different in nature. Also played are Joe Zawinul's "Angel Face", Cole Porter's "I've Got You Under My Skin" (stylistically very like "My Funny Valentine" from the previous album "Undercurrent") and a beautiful and sensitive version of Gershwin's "My Man's Gone Now". A worthy companion volume for "Undercurrent".
