Bill Evans Trio – I Will Say Goodbye {Fantasy}[OJC]


Review by Scott Yanow (allmusic.com)

The title refers to the Michel Legrand piece performed twice on the date, and to the fact that pianist Bill Evans was on the verge of switching labels from Fantasy to Warner Bros. For his final Fantasy album, Evans, bassist Eddie Gómez, and drummer Eliot Zigmund perform memorable renditions of such songs as Herbie Hancock’s “Dolphin Dance,” Johnny Mandel’s “Seascape,” and Burt Bacharach’s underrated “A House Is Not a Home.” The CD reissue adds two additional selections (“Nobody Else But Me” and “Orson’s Theme”) from this excellent series of sessions. Fine post-bop music from an influential piano giant.

Tracks:
01 – I Will Say Goodbye
02 – Dolphin Dance
03 – Seascape
04 – Peau Douce
05 – Nobody Else But Me
06 – I Will Say Goodbye (take 2)
07 – The Opener
08 – Quiet Light
09 – A House is Not a Home
10 – Orson’s Theme

Personnel:
Bill Evans – piano
Eddie Gomez – bass
Eliot Zigmund – drums

Quality: eac, flac, cue, log, artwork
