BILL EVANS TRIO WALTZ FOR DEBBY 180G
Additional Artists: Scott LaFaro Paul Motian
This is the second of two Riverside albums made up of selections recorded by the classic Bill Evans/Scott LaFaro/Paul Motian trio at their legendary live recording session of June 25, 1961. Although originally issued a half-year later than Sunday at the Village Vanguard, this was by no means an afterthought collection of lesser items: Evans and producer Orrin Keepnews had immediately recognized that there was more than enough material for two top-level records. The dozen chosen performances were subdivided to enable the first album released to feature LaFarowho had died in an auto accident just ten days after recording. Thus, this second collection can fairly be said to present a more typical overview of this remarkable unit at work.
