The Bill Evans Trio, live at Birdland, 1960

This is an essential document of Bill Evans' quintessential trio performing at its peak. Evans showcases his unique sensitivity at the piano throughout, while Scott La Faro displays breath-taking 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.

Originally recorded for radio broadcast, they are presented here with background notes and images.
