This 1968 release of Bill Evans' performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival the year before is a pinnacle of trio interplay (handily justifying its being awarded a Grammy for Best Instrumental Small Group Jazz Performance). Drummer Jack DeJohnette, at the beginning of his career ascension, spent only a year with Evans. His playing at this performance embraces the rich trio format that Evans developed, wherein each of the three are of seemingly equal voice. Listening to this set, one is hard pressed to identify any one musician as being in support of the others; rather, they are in tandem or in conversation. The previously unissued "Quiet Now" joins "I Loves You Porgy" as gorgeously emotive meditation for solo piano.
