All-Analog 180g Vinyl LP of Bill Evans at Town Hall Volume One Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes, Pressed at QRP, and Housed in Stoughton Gatefold Jacket

From Bill Evans' first-ever performance at a concert hall in New York City. Featuring the sensitive accompaniment of Chuck Israelson bass and Arnold Wise on drums. Includes a 13-minute solo suite dedicated to the memory of Bill's father who had only recently passed at the time of the recording.

"Of pianist Bill Evans' many live albums, at Town Hall Volume One has always been among his most delicate and elegant," writes Marc Myers for JazzWax. "Evans' playing is taut and graceful, with lovely long improvisational lines and a snappy, fluid attack on the keyboard. The mix of standards and two originals – one was a suite in memory of his' father, who died just three days earlier – also were neatly selected and assembled."

This all-analog 180g vinyl LP reissue was mastered from the original analog tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound, pressed at QRP, and comes housed in a Stoughton tip-on gatefold jacket.
