Background: Released in 1964, Waltz for Debby was a collaboration between Swedish singer Monica Zetterlund and American jazz pianist Bill Evans.
An oddity in Bill Evans’ catalog, this 1964 date places the Swedish jazz vocalist Monica Zetterlund alongside the Evans Trio (with Chuck Israels on bass and Larry Bunker on drums). Still, the match is seemingly perfect. Evans’ lyricism is well suited to a breezy, sophisticated songstress like Zetterlund. There is an iciness on this recording, but it is difficult to decipher if it is in the performance or in the engineering where she seems to be way out in front of the band, when she was really in the middle of all the musicians in the studio. … In all this is an odd but special item, one that is necessary — for at least one listen — by any serious fan of the pianist and composer.
