Bill Evans is one of the most influential pianists in jazz history. He captured the mood of a tune in ways few could rival, and he always excelled on ballads. This Verve collection highlights Evans's delicate lyricism and deep sense of melody, harmony, and counterpoint. Made up of nearly all ballads, BILL EVANS FOR LOVERS proves his brilliance on all 11 tracks. Culled from Evans's 1960s and '70s work, this disc features flautist Jeremy Steig, tenor saxophonist Stan Getz, and many others.
Evans's version of "Spring Is Here" is charmingly dissonant and colorful. His rendition of the Irish traditional "Danny Boy" is arguably one of his greatest recorded moments. Performed as a stately yet sorrowful anthem, each note Evans plays is more heartrending than the last. The bossa nova-tinged "It Must Be Love" is one of the more unusual tracks on this disc and a rarity in the Evans catalog. On this tune, Evans trades lines with himself, moving back and forth between a piano and a Rhodes keyboard in a remarkable question-and-answer approach. An air of romance is, of course, present throughout this set, but regardless of theme, it's a fine Bill Evans compilation.
