    Quirky album in Bill Evans catalogue. He plays over a tape of himself.
    I felt the concept was a little gimmicky at first but I am warming to it
    I can't imagine how difficult this must be.

    In some places the juxtaposition really creates a wonderful tension. In others it seems a little heavy handed to me but I need to spend more time with it still.

    Gianluigi Trovesi - Jazz Italiano Live 2007 Casa del Jazz CdJ 02

    Another day, another Italian alto saxophonist. Trovesi always seems to put together great bands. This time he has a guitarist and extra percussion/keyboards along with the rhythm section and the redoubtable Rava who never disappoints. At turns, funky, wistful and muscular music. Good live sound too.

    Listening and watching :) Everytime i watch these clips of Joey in the studio with these world class musicians.It's just amazing how good he is,when many kids are just starting to take lessons and he is already playing at this level.

    Listening to this from the Waldron CD box set vol. 2. Anyone with an x or a z in their name is a mysterious person to me.

    Louis Hayes (Vee Jay) mono rainbow rimmed label.

    This is most of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet minus Cannonball and Barry Harris on piano instead of Joe Zawnul.
    Excellent hard bop and Nat Adderley is hot.

    I just picked this up yesterday in the used bins. $1 for a West Germany for US CD. Haven't listened yet but looking forward to it - didn't realize it was with the OP Trio until I got home and looked at it. So I'm stoked about that.

    This is really, really great performance. And the sonic is quite listenable albeit a few obvious flaws.

    I found a short video that shows the room where the performance was done. Looks like very interesting but it’s a pity that I seldom understand the German narration.

    I was also concerned for the same reason. In the wrong hands an artist could make it a busy mess. Thankfully Bill didn't do that. I held off buying it for a long time and was pleasantly surprised.

    Hi Yasujiro, how would you rank this one compared with other 1980 concerts?

    The performances on The Last Waltz* are amazing. Spent a lot of money on that box, so instead of getting:
    Turn Out the Stars: Final Village Vanguard Recordings
    I bought: Artist's Choice: Highlights from Turn Out the Stars
    (Bill's own choices for a future album). In terms of sound quality it's the best I heard from the last trio live.

    *wish Joe's drums were louder

    Hi,
    I would ranked this as top with the Consecration & The Last Waltz, since this was recorded just two weeks before the Keystone Korner dates. If you love The Last Waltz, this Gambit CD is definitely indispensable. It is simply beautiful.
