 Notes & Reviews
This is a jazz historian's Holy Grail! Here's pianist Bill Evans on vinyl acetate, from the age of 12. Presented in chronological order, this 15 track CD is just the first in a five volume series planned for release, along with some 'best-of' releases and a final boxed set. This includes an introduction by Professor of Jazz History at UNO, Charles C. Blancq. A glorious 12 page booklet contains never before seen photos of Evans as a youth performer, as well as personal stories told by long time childhood friend, schoolmate and band mate, Connie Atkinson. Each recording is commented on by Evans' own son and producer of the album, Evan Evans. Album was transferred with care by legendary Joe Gastwirt, using HDCD, and pressed using the jitter free K2 laser.
