Bill Evans - You Must Believe in Spring (2001) Retail CD
If you like Bill Evans in his more romantic and reflective modes, this beautiful album belongs in your collection, next to Moonbeams and Undercurrent. Not that there's anything hazy or soft-centred about the music: the trio swings infectiously on the title track and on the theme from "M*A*S*H", and on the slower, more introspective pieces Evans's intense concentration gives his lines a strength and clarity even when the playing is at its most delicate. There's a great depth of emotion in his playing of a kind which, on other albums, you find on some tracks but rarely sustained throughout the albummore…, as it is here. It's a nicely constructed programme consisting of memorable tunes like "Sometime Ago" and the two previously mentioned, as well as some haunting, 'other-wordly' material such as "B Minor Waltz" and "Gary's Theme". Like any jazz musician Evans could sometimes fall back on his favourite clichés to "mark time" during an improvisation, but on this session he is at his most alert and inventive, thinking through his ideas and producing some flowing, searching melodic lines. Bassist Eddie Gomez is in excellent form, blending his lines with the pianist's with remarkable empathy and Elliot Zigmund is a compatible drummer who adapts his playing thoughtfully to the different moods and character of each piece. Good recording, which showcases the rapturous, singing qualities in Evans's playing and his subtly graded tone, dynamics and pedalling. This is a very special, very highly recommended album. Yes, it is rather short measure for a CD; but sometimes it's true that "less is more". The music itself is beyond price.
