Finally on vinyl! Previously only available as a out-of-print CD set, The Complete Village Vanguard Recordings 1961 captures what is widely considered to be the best live performance by the Bill Evans Trio. Recorded at the Village Vanguard NYC on June 25th 1961, this expanded set includes every note from both the afternoon and evening sessions spread over 4 LPs of jazz genius. Here Bill Evans, along with Scott LaFaro on bass, and Paul Motian on drums, are at the top of their game, displaying uncanny interplay and mind-blowing improvisational work. 26 tracks in all. Recommended.
