Bill Evans…at Shelly’s Manne-Hole

Here is another of my favorite albums, but then I asked myself why? Well maybe because it has three very unbeatable components. One this is 1963, a time when jazz was jazz, secondly it is recorded “live”, need I say more? And thirdly, it was recorded at the hottest joint on the “Westcoast”, Shelly’s Mann-Hole. Bill Evans is a bit more aggressive than usual here on the keys, possibly because of the setting or could be that his two incredible band mates were pushing the envelope so to speak. Bassist Chuck Israels and drummer Larry Bunker really combine for a wonderful live performance recorded for the Riverside label. This is one you will want in your collection. Discover and enjoy.
