O’s Notes: Legendary pianist Bill Evans in In prime form on this live session scored at Ronnie Scott’s in London over a 4-week engagement. Evans performs in a trio including two other legendary musicians, bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jack DeJohnette. Each man performs masterfully alongside the genius of Bill Evans notably on “Embraceable You” and “Someday My Prince Will Come”. Those are just a few of the twenty selections presented on two discs. The recording is mono but the performance is remarkable, complemented by an extensive booklet of liner notes with photos and interviews.
