Bill Evans Trio
Recorded live at the Village Vanguard, NYC
Bill Evansは、生涯を通じて発表作品の選択には独特の自制を行っており、制作者がOKを出す出来であっても拒否することが、ままあったそうです。これは、あるファンがウーヘルの小型テレコを店内の自分の椅子近くにおいて、10年にもわたって私的に録音していた大量のテープの中から編集されたものです。店主が黙認していたことは確かですが、Bill Evans本人が承知していたか否かは不明なので、本来ならば発売される筋のものはないのでしょう。しかしその余りの重要性に、本人の死後にEvans財団が許可を出して、彼のパトロンとを言える元のRiverside、その後のMilestones社長であるOrrin Keepknewsが、世に問うた8枚組ボックスものです。10年という長い間、自宅を離れて赴任中の西海岸からトンボ帰りをするなんてこともありながら、Bill Evans Trioが出演する週の金曜夜と日曜のマチネーには、女友達と一緒にいつも最前列に陣取って、ズタ袋に隠した機器で録音し続けたといいます。それほどに、彼のトリオの素晴らしい演奏を記録として残しておくべきだという強い思いがあったのだそうです。上記のように長い間のことですから、Eddie Gomez以外はいろんな人が出入りしていたトリオの、時の流れを超えた「真実」がここには捉えられています。
