Description
Lyric and thoughtful, pianist Bill Evans proved an urbane bridge between the styles of Bud Powell and Horace Silver and the modern approach of the likes of Herbie Hancock. This album combines a pair of originals — 'Blue in Green' and 'Peri's Scope' — with a handful of show tunes and standards. With a preference for irregular phrasing and a taste for unusual chord spellings, Evans was frequently able to recast old chestnuts and tired warhorses into new gems and spirited charges, as he does here with 'Witchcraft', 'Spring Is Here' and 'When I Fall in Love'.
