When Bill Evans left the seminal Miles Davis Sextet at the end of 1958, he turned permanently to leading his own trio, thereby influencing and enriching the whole course of contemporary jazz piano. This recording, made when his first group had been together for a full year, brilliantly demonstrates his innovative concept of "simultaneous improvisation" with legendary bassist Scott LaFaro.

with Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian
