Bill Evans - Consecration Vol. 1 Full Album









Consecration, Vol. 1

Excerpted from tapes made during Bill Evans' final engagement at San Francisco's now-defunct club Keystone Korner, this album captures the pianist literally weeks before his death on Sept. 15, 1980. Although he was in very bad shape physically due to the deterioration of his health, it doesn't show in his playing. With bassit Marc Johnson and drummer Joe Labarbera, he plays old favorites like "You and the Night and the Music" with aggressiveness yet still display his introspective side as in his "RE: Person I Knew." The ballads are of course an Evans specialty, with a new work "Knit for Mary F" and Johnny Mandel's timeless "Emily."

Bill Evans - Conversations With Myself - Full Album


Conversations with Myself is a 1963 album by American jazz musician Bill Evans.


History

Recording with Glenn Gould's piano, CD 318, at studio sessions on February 6 and 9, and May 20, 1963, Evans used the then controversial method of overdubbing three different yet corresponding piano tracks for each song.

Evans followed Conversations with Myself with Further Conversations with Myself and New Conversations, both recorded in a similar vein.


Reception

The album earned Evans his first Grammy Award in 1964 for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Individual or Group. It received a 5-star review in Down Beat in 1963.[3]

Writing for Allmusic, music critic Michael G. Nastos wrote:

    Certainly one of the more unusual items in the discography of an artist whose consistency is as evident as any in modern jazz, and nothing should dissuade you from purchasing this one of a kind album that in some ways set a technological standard for popular music – and jazz – to come.[2]

Jason Laipply of All About Jazz wrote:

    [The album] was an instant classic for the jazz community. Evans' work on the ten tunes included here is truly inspired and amazing to behold... this glimpse of the artist at a heightened level of expression is very rewarding indeed. However, for the casual fan, I would not suggest this disc. The musical vocabulary is complex enough that the simple beauty of the songs, and Evans playing, is at times lost.[1]

Track listing

    "'Round Midnight" (Monk, Williams) – 6:35
    "How About You?" (Lane, Ralph Freed) – 2:50
    "Spartacus Love Theme" (Alex North) – 5:10
    "Blue Monk" (Monk) – 4:32
    "Stella by Starlight" (Young, Washington) – 4:52
    "Hey There" (Richard Adler, Ross) – 4:31
    "N.Y.C.'s No Lark" (Bill Evans) – 5:36
    "Just You, Just Me" (Jesse Greer, Raymond Klages) – 2:37
    "Bemsha Swing" (Denzil Best, Monk) – 2:56
    "A Sleepin' Bee" (Arlen, Capote) – 4:10

Tracks 9 and 10 not part of original LP release. Track 7 recorded on Feb 6, 1963; tracks 1, 2, 5, 6, 8-10 on Feb 9; tracks 3 and 4 recorded on May 20, 1963

 Conversations with Myself es un álbum del músico estadounidense Bill Evans.


Historia

Grabado en tres diferentes sesiones de estudio los días 6, 9 de febrero y 20 de mayo de 1963, Evans grabó este álbum utilizando el controvertido método de overdubbing. Para cada canción se grabaron tres pistas de piano diferentes, usando para ello el piano de Glenn Gould, CD 318.

Evans continuó usando dicha técnica con los álbumes Further Conversations with Myself y New Conversations.


Acogida

El álbum le hizo ganar a Evans su primer [[Premio Grammy] en 1964 en la categoría de mejor álbum instrumental de jazz. Recibió una puntuación de 5 estrellas en Down Beat en 1963.1

En cŕitico musical Michael G. Nastos escribió para Allmusic lo siguiente:

    Ciertamente un de los objetos mas inusuales en la discografía de un artista cuya consistencia es tan evidente como cualquiera en el jazz moderno, y nada debería disuadir a la hora de comprar este álbum único que de alguna manera marcará un estándar tecnológico para la música popular y el jazz.
    .2

Jason Laipply de All About Jazz escribió:

    [El álbum] se convirtió al instante en un clásico para la comunidad del jazz. El trabajo de Evans en las 10 piezas incluidas aquí está realmente inspirado y es increíble de contemplar... esta mirada del artista a un nivel superior de la expresión es muy gratificante sin duda. Sin embargo, para el fan informal, no recomendaría este disco. El vocabulario musical es suficientemente complejo como para que la simple belleza de las canciones se pierde mientras Evans toca.3
