Bill Evans - Live At Art D'Lugoff's Top Of The Gate Vol. 2


You’re about to be transported on October 23, 1968, to Greenwich Village in New York City. Jazz in the 1960s was one of the music’s greatest eras, and thanks to a gentleman named George Klabin, we have this important document of one of its leading talents. George was only 22 years old at the time, full of passion and engineering skill, when he took advantage of an offer by Evan’s longtime manager, Helen Keane, to record Bill’s new trio. George aired these two fully recorded sets of music one time on his radio show on Columbia University’s WKCR-FM and these tapes have been stored away all these years until now.

This is the only Bill Evans recording from The Village Gate ever released, offering listeners a table at the front of the stage for a stellar performance by one of jazz's greatest trios. The lineup that night consisted of three musicians in their prime: Evans, bassist Eddie Gomez, and drummer Marty Morell. Recorded by George Klabin with an analogue tube console.
