This was Bill Evans' first album for the Fantasy label in the '70s, and he began his association in fine style. Beautifully recorded in Tokyo in January 1973, the Evans trio present a set of new additions to their "set list" to a wildly appreciative audience. This response seems to stoke the Trio's fire--all Evans' trademark lyricism is there, but there's a touch of "reckless" abandon in his playing--less restraint, even more swing. The bass and drums of Eddie Gomez (who sounds as though he's playing right next to you) and Marty Morell, respectively, play with almost telepathic empathy. The trio plays the usual standards, but introduce Bobbie Gentry's (that's right, the "Ode to Billy Joe" woman) "Mornin' Glory" and friend Tony Bennett's "Yesterday I Heard the Rain"--and the most glorious, sublime moment is a solo version of jazz bassist Steve Swallow's "Hullo Bolinas." On the latter, Evans' touch is so light and tender the notes seem to float out of the piano by themselves. A winner!
