Race... I've been waiting for this. I'm a Bill Evans fan too and spin his vinyl often. Let me know your thoughts and impressions on this release.

Once I give it a spin, I'll post thoughts in the Jazz Listening thread.

Last year my wife gave me the complete Riverside recordings box set of 45 RPM LPs (11 albums). It is one of the best gems of my collection.

Looking forward to your thoughts, the Riverside Recordings are a must have for Bill Evans fans

Dave and Josh,

Her music doesn't come easily to me. For whatever reason, I have to come to terms with it intellectually before I can embrace it on an emotional level, if that makes any sense at all to you. I don't know if it's her timing or her phrasing or what. That's not to say that I don't like this album or even that the jury is still out, I simply still have to wrap my brain around it - it's been a generally fruitful exercise in the past with her material.

Having said that, I was immediately impressed by a sense of intimacy, a sense of presence that I didn't get from her previous two releases. Perhaps it was because this is the first time I've heard her on vinyl, perhaps not - this too I'll figure out eventually. It also occurs to me that there is a certain timelessness to her music. I think her style would have been just as comfortable and relevant in the 40's or 50's. I'll be spending a lot more time with this one for a while.
