The Bill Evans Trio – The Classic Trio 1959-1961 (2018) • Acrobat [2CD]

If the trio of Bill Evans/p, Scot LaFaro/b and Paul Motian/dr aren’t the “best” trio in the history of jazz, they at least have to be the most influential. LaFaro’s use of the bass freed up the rhythm and melody to a point that allowed Bill Evans to do harmonic explorations that were barely even dreamed of before. And, with Paul Motian’s sublimely pulsated drum and cymbal work, the team created symbiotic conversations that simply defined modal/post bop jazz. This two disc set brings together material from their two studio albums, Portrait in Jazz and Explorations, as well as their legendary June 1961 recordings from the Village Vanguard. If you don’t already have these recordings, or have never heard of them, here is the place to start.
