#29 Bill Evans "Sunday at the Village Vanguard"
Ok, it seems I'm learning to like jazz. Especially this late 50s early 60s stuff. This is a really good album, full of that cool blue vibe that likely got all the beatniks going. Or hepcats. Whatever. Another live album, this one had different takes for some tracks, at least the version I heard on iTunes did. The audience sounded kind of tired in their response on some of them, which is a shame as this was a hell of an album. Seems, because of this list, I'm going to have to start listening to jazz. Maybe a lot. Never heard of Evans before but now I'm glad I did. Very well worth a listen and likely more than one. Thanks, list.
