Bill Evans - The Complete Fantasy Recordings (9-CD Box Set)

+

Here is the complete body of work recorded by Bill Evans as released by the Fantasy label. Reissued in sleek and compact new packaging, the 9-CD box set contains 98 track selections recorded by the influential jazz pianist between 1973 and 1979 in club, concert, and studio settings; plus a fascinating hour-long interview with Evans at the piano is included, conducted by Marian McPartland and originally broadcast on National Public Radio in 1978.

In these solo, duo, trio, and quintet performances with Tony Bennett, Ray Brown, Kenny Burrell, Eddie Gomez, Philly Joe Jones, Lee Konitz, Harold Land, Warne Marsh, Marty Morell, and Eliot Zigmund, Bill Evans is revealed as a commanding artist at the peak of his powers.
