Moonbeams by Evans

June 30, 2010 Leave a comment

I recently picked up this album and asked myself why haven’t I purchased this before. This all important Bill Evans album was the first album recorded after by him after Scott Lafaro’s untimely death. A great studio album with Chuck Israels on bass and Paul Motian on drums, discover one of the most incredible trios in modern jazz!!

The Birdlanders

I discovered these two gems about a month ago and have been listening to them almost non stop. These albums were produced in 1954 by the well-known French pianist/producer Henri Renaud. He gathered together some incredibly talented musicians all of whom were regulars playing the famous Birdland club at the time and what a group of Allstars, these bebop orientated sessions are fantastic. Big things do come in small packages!! Discover and enjoy!!
