This collection may not be the "essential" Bill Evans; such a distillation is as elusive for the restlessly creative and profoundly influential pianist as it would be for Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, or John Coltrane. But you can be sure a great deal of deliberation went into the selection of tunes and performances that would represent certain essential elements of his repertoire, various collaborations, and evolving artistic approach. –from the liner notes by Derk Richardson

with Cannonball Adderley, Paul Chambers, Jim Hall, Percy Heath, Freddie Hubbard, Chuck Israels, Philly Joe Jones, Connie Kay, Teddy Kotick, Scott LaFaro, Paul Motian
