Click above to purchase Bill Evans’ Interplay
Learn Jazz Standards.com takes time this week to look back on an extraordinary album in jazz history: Bill Evans’ Interplay. Though Album of the Week normally features brand new music, we like to occasionally honor some of the most important records in jazz.
Interplay was special for Bill Evans due to the fact that it was the first record he came out with as a leader that featured a larger group than his trio. The record featured some of Bill’s favorite on their instruments: Jim Hall on guitar, Percy Heath on bass, Philly Joe Jones on drums, and Freddie Hubbard on trumpet.
The playing on this record is unbelievable and truly an important documentation of jazz history. If you don’t have this one, waste no more time!
