Additional Information

Bill Evans s return to full activity in 1962 came almost a year after his celebrated trio recordings at the Village Vanguard. Just ten days after that classic live session, bassist Scott LaFaro had died in a highway accident. Evans, deeply shaken, eventually re-formed his trio with the same drummer (Paul Motian) and Chuck Israels on bass. Their first visit to a studio was for a dual purpose: to make an all-ballad-tempo album, Moonbeams, and this normal set at the same time. It was producer Orrin Keepnews s thought that recording eight slow numbers in a row might prove unduly enervating; accordingly, the total two-album repertoire was interspersed over three days of recording and the net result was two excellent additions to the Evans catalog. In this Original Jazz Classics Remasters edition, three bonus tracks round out the program two of which are previously unreleased.

This is the 2013, 40th anniversary Riverside Records reissue of the 1962 Bill Evans Trio recording, titled," How My Hear Sings!". The musicians include Bill Evans [P], Paul Motian [D] and Chuck Israels on bass.

The album contains the eight original tracks with a total playing time of forty-three minutes. Additionally, three bonus tracks (total 16 minutes) are included. Two selections,"34 Skidoo"[take 9] and"Ev'ything I Love"[take 2] are previously unreleased.

Countless essays have been published relating to the May, June 1962 recording sessions that produced the two landmark albums,"Moon Beams"and" How My Heart Sings!". It's simply astonishing, listening to this recording and recognizing that the new bassist, Chuck Israels, could play with such aplomb given his brief tenure with the band. The performances demonstrate a jazz synergy that usually requires years to achieve. All the remarkable, when considering these artists had only played together for a few... Read more
"How My Heart Sings!" from 1962 is an Evans/Israels/Motian companion to "Moon Beams." They complement each other perfectly, with singing, tuneful explorations counterbalanced by introspective ballads. "Walking Up" and "34 Skidoo" are two of the original Evans compositions from "How My Heart Sings!" and are remarkable for their inventiveness, sweetness, and haunting simplicity. To follow through on this "theme of pairs," these two albums are the distillation of the Evans/Israels/Motian trio, just as "Sunday at the Village Vanguard" and "Waltz for Debby" are the two albums made from "The Complete Village Vanguard Recordings" in 1961, featuring Evans' first great trio with LaFaro/Motian before LaFaro's tragic early death and his replacement by the subtle Chuck Israels. In fact, that first magical trio with LaFaro has another earlier pair: "Explorations" and "A Portrait in Jazz." During the middle and... Read more
Are there any of Bill Evans acoustic piano albums that are not excellent? I do not have them all, but own about 18 different recordings of Bill Evans'. I find that all of them are superbly conceived and played.

As you see in most of the other reviews written here, this is from the "2nd" trio. Yes, it is a bit different from the trio with LaFaro. I can't say that it is the best Evans trio, as I think all are excellent. Just that there is a differfent dynamic here from the earlier trio with LaFaro. I love the music from both of these trios, can't pick one over the other. Same for the Evans / Jones / Jones trio - also excellent.

If you are collecting Bill Evans recordings and enjoying them, you should own this one. Near perfection.

Here is the real deal, though - the above really does not matter - once you "get it" (Bill Evans, that is) you will probably need to buy all of his recorded output, at least up to about 1965. Here is my advice; load your... Read more
