The trio is Philly Joe and Marc Johnson; the guests Lee Knitz, Curtis Fuller, Stan Getz and Christian Ecoude
The undisputed jazz classic, recorded live at The Village Vanguard in New York on June 25, 1961. With Scott LaFaro — ten days before his death in a car accident — and Paul Motian. DMM, 45rpm.
These recordings from 1961 are the perfect place to start with Evans (as everyone must). Scott LaFaro on double bass — ten days before his death — is sublime. A jazz masterpiece.
Giddily lovely ballads from 1962, Chuck Israels taking over from Scott LaFaro.
That’s Nico on the cover.
