Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio

Bill Evans virtually defined jazz piano in the '60s and beyond, and 1966's At Town Hall Volume 1 is one of the finest recordings from the middle period of his trailblazing career. This was Evans last with longtime bassist Chuck Israels while tasteful drummer Arnold Wise rounds out the group. Evans is in top form throughout and you can really hear the unrivaled interplay, enjoyment, and fierce concentration of these music masters on what stands as a beautiful and nicely balanced recording.The live set is largely comprised of lyrical and thoughtful standards including "I Should Care," "Who Can I Turn To," and "My Foolish Heart." The most memorable piece, however, is the 13-and-a-half-minute "Solo: In Memory of His Father," an extensive unaccompanied exploration by Evans that partly uses a theme that became "Turn Out the Stars."

Musicians:
Bill Evans, piano
Chuck Israels, bass
