Bill Evans–WALTZ FOR DEBBY

NPR calls jazz pianist and composer Bill Evans (1929-1980) “one of the giants of jazz piano.” Evans is noted for his role as a member of the sextet that recorded Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue as well as for recording “over 50 albums as band leader” in the course of his career. This album, WALTZ FOR DEBBY, was among the last collaborations of his first jazz trio; the bassist Scott LaFaro died just days after the recordings were made.
