Everybody Digs Bill Evans
Bill Evans (p), Sam Jones, Paul Chambers (b), Philly Joe Jones (d)
This edition presents the complete 1958/59 Winter trio sessions by Bill Evans. Included is the LP Everybody Digs Bill Evans, in its entirety. It was Evans' second studio album recorded under his own name (it was made more than two years after his debut LP, titled New Jazz Conceptions).
Also here is the complete trio studio session that immediately follows this album in the pianist's discography. This obscure Bill Evans trio set (with bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones) went unissued until the mid-'70s when the pianist decided that it was worth releasing as a fine example of bassist Chambers' work. Very much a spontaneous set recorded after the rhythm section made part of a record accompanying trumpeter Chet Baker.
