The tracks will Time Remembered - Bill Evans - The Sesjun Radio Shows (Vinyl of great interest to Evans ' fans. The new trio, with the brilliant young bassist Marc Johnson and superb, subtle drummer Joe LaBarberaachieved a level of playing close to the pianist's group with Scott La Faro and Paul Motian. The trio selections cover familiar territory but find the band at its peak, highlighted by the lightly swinging take of Tadd Dameron 's "If You Could See Me Now" and Evans ' always introspective exploration of Miles Davis ' "Nardis," the latter tune individually showcasing all three LP).
