Background: After the unexpected death of bassist Scott Le Faro in 1961, Bill Evans started looking for some things to do away from the trio format.
In 1962, he teamed up with guitarist Jim Hall to create Undercurrent.
Other than four piano solos from April 4, 1962, this set was pianist Bill Evans’ first recordings after a hiatus caused by bassist Scott LaFaro’s tragic death in a car accident. The first of two meetings on record in a duo format with guitarist Jim Hall, the collaborations are often exquisite. Both Evans and Hall had introspective and harmonically advanced styles along with roots in hard-swinging bebop. There is more variety than expected on the fine set with some cookers, ballads, waltzes, and even some hints at classical music. Recommended.
