Bill Evans & Jeremy Steig - What's New ?

This CD reissue has the debut of drummer Marty Morell with Bill Evans and bassist Eddie Gomez ; that particular trio would keep the same personnel for six productive years. Actually this is a quartet set with guest flutist Jeremy Steig, whose playing recalls Herbie Mann's recording (Nirvana) with Evans back in the early '60s. Both flutists were always open to the influences of pop and rock although in both of their collaborations with Bill Evans, the music is very much on the pianist's turf. With the exception of Evans' "Time Out for Chris" and the "Spartacus Love Theme," the songs performed on this date would fit securely in the Miles Davis repertoire of the late '50s. Steig is in particularly fine form on the program which includes tunes such as "Straight, No Chaser," "Autumn Leaves" and "So What."

Pleasant surprise to see the links still alive on this one. Bill Evans is so great that I will instantly grab anything by him. I had also never heard of Jeremy Steig. Anyway, great post and I really appreciate getting this rarity. Thank you Mel!
