The Peacocks - Bill Evans - You Must Believe In Spring (Vinyl, LP, Album)

I used to think that older recordings weren't going to sound very good, using old technology and all to capture the actual performance. Every one of Bill's older albums have really good sound quality that surprises me, and his playing as usual is otherworldly, with sidemen to match.

I've got a couple dozen of Evan's records, and I think this is one of his best. His recording of "The Peacocks" alone is worth the price of the album. I'm a little bummed that it took me so long to find Bill Evans, but, better late than never! One person found this helpful. I don't know how to review this CD, because when reviewing a Bill Evans album, my intellect gets in the way of the music. Every time I listen to this CD, it makes me soar, it inspires me, and sometimes, raises the hairs on the back of my neck as I am astounded by the beauty of it.

Recorded 3 years before his death, this session is one of the most melodic the great pianist ever recorded. I don't think there is a pianist who ever lived who could create with the music as well as Evans. This recording is creative without being dense. Every note is distinctive, almost as if the pianist is holding each one for the listener's pleasure.

This is an album of beautiful melodies, with really great production values. The music is inspirational and passionate. I rank this Evans recording as maybe my very favorite. The pianist on this date is authoritative, passionate, and above all, melodic. I'm making a hash of this review I know, but as I write this I am listening to the beautiful 'B Minor Waltz' and I am overwhelmed by a feeling of joy.

That's what Bill Evans can do for you. Just buy this recording, I absolutely guarantee you will be happy with it. If there is such a thing as essential Bill Evans, this CD must be included. I am a realtively new listener to Bill Evans. I don't know much about the technical aspects of jazz piano, but I know what I like when I hear it.

I was "hooked" from the first time I heard him. His gentle piano playing and the intropsective quality of his music struck a deep chord in me. Listening to that live recording brought back the times I had been to New York and stumbled into in a small basement nightclub like the Village Vangaurd listening to trio jazz ensembles and conversing with friends.

Each CD I buy has me listening to it over and over again. With "You Must Believe in Spring," I find that I want to play it almost with a kind of obsession, never tiring of it, and hearing something a little bit different to appreciate each time I listen to it. I particularly like "Gary's Theme" and "Sometime Ago," both beautifully executed. If you like "Moon Beams," you'll love this one. Bill Evans is the John Keats of the piano, a lyric poet whose tone, voicings and inventions are at once exquisitely sad and beautiful.

The best periods in Evans' relatively short career were the early trios with LaFaro on bass, and his final trio with Marc Johnson. He was an artist who experienced a sudden resurgence of creative energy and spirit in his final days listen to the performance recorded live in Paris, especially "I Loves You Porgy, for perhaps his most passionate outpouring of soul on record.

The point is that for various reasons related to his habits and health as well as to the excessive amount of solo space given to Eddie Gomez, a virtuosic but frequently boring bassist, this album and much of his other work in the early and mid-seventies is not his very best. It's not the Evans' album to own if you plan to make it your only one. A great album I love Jazz though I do not know much about it, but thoroughly enjoy this CD, it is very relaxing and beautiful for a dinner with friends, also nice company when you're alone in the house but don't want to feel alone.

Another musician that does this is Keith Jarrett. Listen to his musical meanderings and you feel confused. Listen to Evans' music and you feel enlightened.

Think of melody as meaning or feeling,and then improvise on it and see how the meaning is enhanced. Many musicians play like Jarrett, and many can't play a melodic line. The fact that many musicians can't play melody astounds me.

Improvisation is worthless unless there is a beautiful melody on which one can elaborate on. I am a realtively new listener to Bill Evans. I don't know much about the technical aspects of jazz piano, but I know what I like when I hear it.

Translate all reviews to English. I bought this CD from Amazon based purely upon some customer reviews I'd read. It didn't grab me I'm afraid and it sat on my shelf for over a year whilst I considered selling it.

Then one day, being a mean type, I thought I'd better try to get some enjoyment out of it since it had cost me money! Well, it took over a year but I have to say this album is quite sublime and all the better for not being immediately appealing. I have gone from disappointment, through indifference to finding it to be one of the most rewarding albums in my collection.

You have to wonder at such beauty coming forth from such sadness - 3 of these songs after all have some connection with the suicides of friends and family. A heartbreakingly beautiful album that I know I shall treasure for the rest of my life. Thank you for your feedback.

Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Everyone digs Bill Evans especially me! Perfect for late evening listening, a classic.

Bill takes the theme through several keys it at a medium pace, with a quasi-Latin feel in the drums. Though surely more reserved than later performances, it works well here in its first recorded outing. Later takes with Philly Joe Jones in Europe were far more aggressive, as were live versions with the Johnson and LaBarbera trio, so its interesting to listen to this first reading. It's a blues, of course, only altering the last chord and Bill was not known for his blues playing, preferring far more advanced structures to hang his tapestries on.

The trio interacts with great flair, as Bill's lines often pounce against the groove in rhythmic displacement a favorite technique he expounds on in that Marian McPartland show in And with the significant inclusion of these three previously unreleased tracks, we get to have some sunshine too, after remembering the rain.
