Info for Sunday At The Village Vanguard (Live At The Village Vanguard / 1961 (Remastered))

Few albums in the history of contemporary American music can be more deserving than this one of the designation "Original Jazz Classic." It is the first of two Riverside albums derived from the legendary final appearance of the first Bill Evans trio–taped during the last day of a Village Vanguard engagement, barely ten days before the tragic death of bassist Scott LaFaro. The recordings have long been recognized as capturing the essence of the unique three-way interaction that characterized the trio; this album is further distinguished by its emphasis on the solo work and compositions of the innovative LaFaro.

The gorgeous romanticism of Bill Evans' Sunday at the Village Vanguard cannot be overstated. Neither can the iconic record's place in history — nor what it signifies to generations upon generations of listeners hypnotized by the consummate playing, resplendent compositions, and seamless chemistry. Originally released in1961, the live set remains the gold standard for symbiotic trio performance, empathy, and communication. Because of Orrin Keepnews' brilliant recording, it also survives as one of the best-sounding jazz albums extant — a fact confirmed by its appearance on multiple reissues over the past few decades. But it's never sounded better than this.

Recorded just 10 days before bassist Scott LaFaro perished in a car accident, Sunday at the Village Vanguard changed the way jazz trios were perceived by audiences and musicians alike. Up until Evans, LaFaro, and drummer Paul Motian proved otherwise, a trio configuration meant two sidemen served as rhythmic support to spotlight the virtuosity of a headline performer or primary soloist. Here, the three instrumentalists operate in complete unison and achieve supreme democratic balance.

This reissue features remastered audio from the original master tapes.
