Paris 1976 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Studio 104, Maison de la Radio, Paris, France; November 5, 1976. Very good FM broadcast.

Bill Evans’s use of impressionist harmony, inventive interpretation of traditional jazz repertoire, block chords, and trademark rhythmically independent, “singing” melodic lines continue to influence jazz pianists today. In 1963, Evans recorded Conversations with Myself, a solo album using the unconventional technique of overdubbing over himself. He passed away in 1980. He was 51.

  2. What is this jazz shit?

    Some Led Zep or Cactus would hit the spot.

  3. They look like 3 kykes. One of them is a spic

  4. The Antichrist - “one of them is a spic”? Better to be an asshole like you? What a jerk.

    By Russ on Dec 15, 2019

  5. Only a rare recording by one of the greatest jazz pianists who ever lived, who recorded with Miles and Tony Bennett among others. Keep your provincialism and racism; I’ll take this.

    By Tony Pizza on Dec 15, 2019

  6. Coo1!

    By Jack on Dec 15, 2019

  7. I usually don’t comment, but had to on this one to say: thank you! This is my favorite of Evans’ trios, and perhaps his most underrepresented. I’m always on the hunt for Evans/Gomez/Zigmund recordings if you happen to have any others laying around BigO.

    Thanks again for the great concert.

    By Don Juan on Dec 15, 2019

  8. Thank you BigO! There have been some remarkable jazz concerts the last months: Bill Evans 1978 (Nice), Charles Mingus 1972 (Emmaboda) and 1975 (Kongsberg) and Cannonball Adderley 1969 (Bordeaux). Once again - thank you!

    By sam spade on Dec 15, 2019

  9. The assholes is out again. Don’t care for this jazz shit myself but I didn’t leave that comment. Anti ‘ guess I don’t blame you for layin low bud . That don’t sound like you above either . Think you’d probly pick your spots better than that . Personally don’t got nuthin against jazz . Sure is better than that rap shit today but still like classic rock . Get with the fuckin program.

  10. To all the copycats using the other trolls usernames. If your intention is to use that strategy to drive them away “ you’re only compounding the problem . OK ?

    By Tom on Dec 15, 2019

  11. Hey Anti ‘ if that was really you above ‘ was Evans really a Jew bastard? Evans don’t sound like a Jew name .

    By Derrick on Dec 15, 2019

  12. Derrick ‘ many many Jew celebrities changed their names back in old Hollywood. That included actors and musicians. Examples are Edward G Robinson ‘ John Garfield and many more . Their managers knew that to be obviously Hebrew meant career sucicide, also they were ashamed and rightfully so . Jew scum that they were and are .

    By HHH on Dec 15, 2019

  13. Garfield’s real name was Julius Garfinkel ‘ Robinson’s was Emanuel Goldenberg . You think that would have worked back then ? Not a chance .

    By HHH on Dec 15, 2019

  14. Thank you BigO!! I found you too late to listen to the Dave Brubeck - London 1966. Is it at all possible for you to reload that or any other Dave Brubeck that you have in your vaults? Thank you for the music you find and provide to all of us!

    By Steve on Dec 15, 2019

  15. Well done Big-0. Fantastic diversity-Led Zep ? Old.old hat-get real guys !

    By blatweed on Dec 15, 2019

  17. Rumor has it this was a trio of Lil Uns

    By U L E on Dec 16, 2019

  18. At the risk of being labeled another get off my lawn old fart . What today is as good as Led Zeppelin?

    By CJ on Dec 16, 2019

  19. Or The Rolling Stones “ The Who ‘ Credence ‘ Doors “ Hendrix etc ?

    By CJ on Dec 16, 2019

  20. I played Bath with Led Zeppelin. On the first Led Zeppelin tour of the UK in 1968, we played the Bath Pavilion. Apparently, there is a contract for us receiving £75 for this date. We opened with Train Kept a Rollin.

  21. That’s really Jimmy Page . He’s very accurate in his memories.

  22. To all the guys hung up on penis size . Size matters a lot but you still have to know how to wiggle the worm .

  23. The Waterboys are a band I believe is equal to the best that the sixties and seventies had to offer.


    The Waterboys- “The Return of Jimi Hendrix

    By Mark on Dec 16, 2019

  24. Check out Thw Waterboys’ song “Destinies Entwined.” It’s classic rock in the modern age.

    By Mark on Dec 16, 2019

  25. Courtney is right on . Size matters and the white racists are just jealous because they can’t measure up to black men in the bedroom. I date black men exclusively and have never seen one with a small Dic . Most are humongous

    By Rhonda on Dec 17, 2019

  26. Mark the genius isn’t aware that classic rock hasn’t existed since the 1970s. This stuff today isn’t even good music much less classic rock

    By T J on Dec 17, 2019

  27. Go away Mark

  28. tommy thats not jimmy page. some idiot is going to his website

    I played Train Kept a Rollin’ on the Outrider Sessions
    On this day in 1987, I began sessions for a solo album. Some of the material I had already written and some of it was made up on the spot. I asked Chris Farlowe to come and join me on vocals and I kicked it all off with the classic Johnny Burnette and the Rock ‘n Roll Trio number Train Kept a Rollin’ – a song Chris had performed with the original line-up of The Thunderbirds and I had done with Neil Christian and the Crusaders. Later that day, we had completed ‘Prison Blues’ and ‘Blues Anthem’ and both of these tracks appeared on the Outrider album that was to be released the following year.

    I now had The Sol studios running as a commercial venture with Leif Masses, chief engineer and studio manager from Polar Studios, at the helm. I fitted in my sessions around other artist bookings at the Sol.

    By Mark on Dec 17, 2019

  34. Call it classic or not, but in my opinion The Waterboys are as good as any of those 60’s/70’s bands. have you ever seen The Waterboys live, TJ- you’d get quite a music education.

    By Mark on Dec 17, 2019

  35. Hey buddy did you hear the new Who album. Daltry sounds great for someone in his 70’s. The whole album is great. In my opinion, probably their best work since Who’s Next

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Dec 17, 2019

  36. Who’s new album. A more truthful cover would be a picture of Pete Townshend’s face with his eyes wide open and two strips of red tape criss-crossed over his mouth, sealing it shut. This album literally cries out for a warning label. He has brought shame onto himself and The Who.

    By Scar Rad on Dec 17, 2019

  37. Why you say that. I know its half the Who but its a pretty damn good listen. Ball and Chain and Detour are 2 of the standouts in my opinion

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Dec 17, 2019

  38. I agree he should of never said what he said bout moon and entwhistle. I’ll give you that. No idea why he said that

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Dec 17, 2019

  39. You guys are all fags. It’s that simple.

    By Cracky on Dec 17, 2019

  40. Bill Evans is my favorite jazz pianist - always nice to hear some rare examples of his playing.
