Bill Evans - New Conversations

Layers of Mood

Released in 1978, I don’t know the two preceding self-conversations Evans recorded with himself, but I do like this, its mixed over-dubbing of acoustic and electric piano affecting a virtuosity there in the original playing [not that it is extravagant] but consolidated in that layering, and it shifts in and out of timings and rhythms – with occasional electronic piano puffs and pulses and reverb – and gets sassy now and again when turning bluesy.
