Further Explorations

Chick Corea / Eddie Gomez / Paul Motian

Rather than approach Bill Evans’ music as a tribute, his material provides more of a template. Corea, Gomez and Motian each also contribute original material.

They also take on a never-before-heard, recently unearthed Evans tune, the graceful, gorgeous “Song No. 1.”

The results are inspired, as this elevated piano trio plays with near-telepathic empathy and a remarkable blend of ingenuity and emotional depth. Recorded live at the Blue Note New York City in Feb. 2010.
