O’s Notes: This a collection of remarkable recordings made in Denmark during 1965-1969. Pianist Bill Evans performs in small ensembles with bassist Nils-Henning Ørsted Petersen, and drummer Alan Dawson or Alex Riel. They play fourteen classic Treasures in arrangements that allow for tasteful solos throughout the set. The music is recorded in many venues with live audiences and is just being released since being aired on the radio in the 1960s. There are two discs and a thick booklet with excellent liner notes and photos.
