Bill Evans - Portrait in Jazz
Bill Evans -||- Portrait in Jazz – [Riverside, 1959]
PORTRAIT IN JAZZ: BILL EVANS TRIO is quite simply GRACE in Trio form expressing itself as Jazz. There is an intensity at the heart of the music on this album – and an effortlessness. There is a BEAUTY revealing itself at every moment of the musical expression on this album by Bill Evans (Piano), Scott LaFaro (Bass), and Paul Motian (Drums). I purchased it on Amazon,and couldn’t be more pleased with it. I’ve never been affected by a pianist as I have by Bill Evans.
His lyricism, touch, the sheer depth of feeling he penetrated into, his introspection as an artist all combine into a quality, a presence – musically, that makes him, quite simply, one of a kind. He found his musical soul mates in Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian. They were together for only a moment. But thank whatever that is that brought them together. There’s not much more to say.
PORTRAIT IN JAZZ is musical perfection. Words don’t quite get to the heart of explaining or getting a hold of such a thing as GRACE. All one can really do is to be hungry for it. And, when or if, whatever that mysterious force is, it chooses to present itself to us – receive it. —DH/Amazon.com
