Few albums in the history of contemporary American music can be more deserving than this one of the designation "Original Jazz Classic." It is the first of two Riverside albums derived from the legendary final appearance of the first Bill Evans trio–taped during the last day of a Village Vanguard engagement, barely ten days before the tragic death of bassist Scott LaFaro. The recordings have long been recognized as capturing the essence of the unique three-way interaction that characterized the trio; this album is further distinguished by its emphasis on the solo work and compositions of the innovative LaFaro.

with Scott LaFaro, Paul Motian
