Description

Whilst in London for a four week residency at the renowned RONNIE SCOTT’s JAZZ CLUB,  On March 19, 1965, the Bill Evans Trio stopped by the BBC studios in London to play a pair of sets on Jazz 625, the now-legendary program hosted by the British trumpeter Humphrey Lyttelton.

The combo–which featured Evans on piano, Chuck Israels on bass and Larry Bunker on drums–played two sets, including most of the songs from their just-completed album, Trio ’65. The two 35-minute programs recorded here,  take us back in time to enjoy one of the most brilliant and influential jazz pianists of all time, at work in a tightly integrated trio displaying their well-devoloped rapport, with Larry Bunker’s West Coast cool propelling everything along effortlessly.
