Bill Evans - Interplay


Limited edition - 180gram premium vinyl pressing. This release presents the complete original Bill Evans album Interplay (Riverside RLP9445). The dates showcased the pianist with several great players, trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, bassist Percy Heath, and drummer Philly Joe Jones. As the original producer Orrin Keepnews stated, Evans' first trumpet choice had been Art Farmer, who was unavailable (in addition to collaborations other projects as sidemen with big bands, they had recorded the superb quintet album Modern Art together in 1958). Evans and Freddie Hubbard had both participated Oliver Nelson's wonderful 1961 LP The Blues and the Abstract Truth, and in April of 1962 they would both play the Benny Golson LP Pop + Jazz = Swing. Interplay marked their third and final recorded collaboration.
