Record label: Original Jazz Classics
Musical Artist: Bill Evans Trio
Software Format: Vinyl
This 1963 LP marked the last album Bill Evans made for his first label, Riverside, and was the second of two live recordings which Evans did for the label (the other resulted in the iconic Village Vanguard LPs). But above all, these two nights at Shelly Manne's club in Hollywood marked the only recording by Evans' excellent but short-term third trio, featuring Chuck Israels on bass and LA drummer Larry Bunker. The trio performs a selection of standards with a melodic and sensitive touch.
