Bill Evans – The Bill Evans Album {SONY}


Review by Scott Yanow (allmusic.com)

On this CD reissue (which adds three “new” alternate takes to the original seven song-program), Bill Evans made his debut on electric piano, usually playing it in conjunction with his acoustic piano. Joined by bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Marty Morell, Evans performs seven of his stronger originals including “Funkallero,” “The Two Lonely People,” “Re: Person I Knew,” “T.T.T.” and “Waltz for Debby.” Although not as distinctive on the electric keyboard as he was on the acoustic counterpart, Evans sounds inspired by its possibilities and is heard in top creative form throughout the date.

Tracks:
01 – Funkallero
02 – The Two Lonely People
03 – Sugar Plum
04 – Waltz for Debby
05 – T.T.T. (Twelve Tone Tune)
06 – Re: Person I Knew
07 – Comrade Conrad
08 – Waltz for Debby (alternate)
09 – Re: Person I Knew (alternate)
10 – Funkallero (alternate)
