Nice Milestone 2-fer collected and remastered in 1975, of the Riverside LP Everybody Digs Bill
Evans, an unreleased trio side and one outtake from the Interplay sessions. The first set finds Bill
in his typical piano trio setting, joined by Sam Jones and Philly Joe Jones, but has several of his moody piano solos, the other format that he really shined in: "Lucky To Be Me", "Peace Piece" and Epilogue". The rest of the set bounces along nicely, with the light feel we dig so much about his trios, as does the later half of the LP, which is with Paul Chamber and Phily Joe. The last piece, "Loose
", is a different take than the one included onteh Interplay 2-fer Milestone issued around this time, with Zoot Sims and Jim Hall in a not-often-heard quintet setting, that works surprisingly well. Also includes "Oleo", "Young & Foolish", "You And The Night And Music" and "Green Dolphin Street".
