After seven years of their close relationship in his trio, Bill Evans in 1974 finally realized his dream of recording a duo album with bassist Eddie Gomez. Intuition is that album. One of the most brilliant of the young bassists influenced by Scott LaFaro, Gomez continued development of the role of the bass in Evans's trio as a fully contributory voice, not just a member of the rhythm section. Gomez had contrived, years earlier, to be in a band opposite Evans at the Village Vanguard, in hopes that the pianist would like what he had heard. Evans did, and Gomez became an indispensable member of the trio, staying for more that a decade. The depth of their empathy is beautifully captured in this recording, with Evans playing acoustic piano and the electric model that was in vogue at the time.
