Bill Evans | Some Other Time: The Lost Session From the Black Forest
by Jeff Becker
Some Other Time
Many are passionate about the works of Bill Evans, and frankly - its not a stretch to be a fan. It simply never gets old, there is always a nuance to enjoy each time, his depth of harmony, his touch and overall use of melodic sensibility is unmatched.
Some Other Time: The Lost Session From the Black Forest, is a recording that sat in a safe in Germany for nearly 50 years. Luckily for all of us, Resonance Records acquired it, and released this two-CD set in the spring of 2016. Featuring Evans, performing in solo, duo and trio contexts in June of 1968 at the MPS Studios in Villingen, Germany, while on tour in Europe. This is a rare and wonderful find, and a truly "must have" add to your collection.
