Probably the most influential pianist in jazz, Bill Evans has left his mark on the likes of Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea and Brad Mehldau. 


The pianist on Miles Davis' quintessential 1959 album Kind of Blue and a key figure in the development of jazz piano, Bill Evans was a pioneer in multi-track jazz recording, a key player in the rise of modal jazz, and a multiple Grammy Award winner.


Covering the later part of his life, from the Warner Bros and Elektra studio and live recordings with his final trio (Johnson and La Barbera - considered the best since the LaFara - Motian team), to his collaboration with Toots Thielemans, this anthology also includes part of the Village Vanguard set, recorded only a few months before his untimely death in 1980.Over 2 hours of muisc is included, some of it only available on the Village Vanguard Box Set (Released in 1996 and now deleted).


This release is compiled and features liner notes by music writer Keith Shadwick, the author of the acclaimed Bill Evans biography Everything Happens To Me.
