About this item

This classic piano/guitar duo album between Bill Evans and Jim Hall has had several label reincarnations, firstly on United Artists and Solid State, and then finally on Blue Note.

AllMusic: "Other than four piano solos from April 4, 1962, this set was pianist Bill Evans'first recordings after a hiatus caused by bassist Scott LaFaro's tragic death. The first of two meetings on record in a duo format with guitarist Jim Hall, the collaborations are often exquisite. Both Evans and Hall had introspective and harmonically advanced styles along with roots in hard-swinging bebop. There is more variety than expected on this fine set with some cookers, ballads, waltzes, and even hints at classical music." Scott Yanow BILL EVANS, piano JIM HALL, guitar New York, April 1962.
