The Bill Evans Trio, live at Birdland, 1960. This is an essential document of Bill Evans's quintessential trio performing at its peak. Evans showcases his unique sensitivity at the piano throughout, while Scott La Faro displays breathtaking virtuosity on his bass, and near-telepathy with drummer Paul Motian. La Faro's tragic death a year later would profoundly affect Evans and his music, making these historically vital performances indispensable for jazz fans. Recorded over various dates: March 12th, 1960 (tracks 1-3), March 19th, 1690 (tracks 4 and 5), April 30th, 1960 (tracks 6-9), and May 7th, 1960 (tracks 10-12).
