Bill Evans


Los Angeles, March 1, 2017 — Resonance Records is proud to announce the release of Bill Evans — Another Time: The Hilversum Concert, a spectacular never-before-heard live recording by the Bill Evans Trio featuring bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jack DeJohnette recorded in Hilversum, Holland, by the Netherlands Radio Union (NRU) in the summer of 1968. Another Time is Resonance’s first follow-up release to the widely celebrated Bill Evans Trio album, Some Other Time: The Lost Session from the Black Forest. Resonance is pleased once again to release this entirely new Bill Evans discovery in full cooperation with the Bill Evans Estate and Eddie Gomez and Jack DeJohnette and Universal Music Group, the parent company of Verve Records, the label Evans was signed to in 1968.     Bill Evans — Another Time: The Hilversum Concert, recorded on June 22, 1968, just two days after Some Other Time, provides a fitting counterpoint to that remarkable album. Interestingly, these two recordings were made one day on either side of the summer solstice and they each seem to embody attributes of their respective seasons. Where Some Other Time, recorded at the legendary MPS studios in Villingen, Germany, is imbued with an introspective, vernal beauty, Another Time was recorded as a live concert, and is a recording remarkable not only for the three musicians’ ebullience, freedom and summer-infused heat; but notable also for its exceptional recording quality utilizing the then state of the art recording techniques of the NRU. Producer Zev Feldman and Executive Producer, George Klabin, regard Another Time as the best-sounding Bill Evans album on Resonance; perhaps one of Evans’s best sounding live recordings ever.

” Bill Evans Live at Art D’Lugoff’s Top of the Gate (Resonance) – a two-CD set that rivals Evans’s revered Village Vanguard recordings for Riverside in June ’61. The unearthed music is frighteningly vivid—like being seated at a table on stage amid the musicians.” -Wall Street Journal

“The long-ago sounds of these two live sets of the Bill Evans trio playing mostly standards, recorded in a long-gone Greenwich Village club, Top of The Gate (it was literally above the better-known Village Gate jazz club), are if not the holy grail, then a very gilded cup.” -Stereophile Magazine Editors Pick – Recording of the Month! – July 012 issue “Now with the release of Live at the Art D’Lugoff’s Top of the Gate, there is more of Bill’s inspiration for all of us to learn from and enjoy.” -Gary Burton “…These sessions will now be heard by generations of players and listeners whose lives will thereby be markedly enhanced.” -Nat Hentoff “…this recording…is a throwback to another era that only barely exists today. It was the ’60’s…” -Eddie Gomez “It was the most incredible time in my life. My first two weeks with Bill Evans were about to begin at the “Top of the Gate” in Greenwich Village, NY.” -Marty Morell
