A Tribute Album to the Great Bill Evans!
With David Hazeltine playing piano, George Mraz on bass and Billy Drummond on drums, this album includes "Time Remembered", "Bill at Peace" and "Funkallero".
"Vetran bassist George Mraz is a veteran of many sessions as a sideman for Venus, and drummer Billy Drummond is also a first-call player, while both fit the mold of musicians who would have complemented Evans himself. Hazeltine never attempts to outright copy Evans' playing style, beginning with a breezy 'Waltz for Debby' that percolates with energy. Ballads are always an acid test for jazz musicians, and Hazeltine's treatment of the bittersweet 'Time Remembered' brings out the lyricism of this beautiful work. Mraz is showcased in good light in the challenging 'Funkallero.' Hazeltine has one solo feature, the intricate original 'Bill at Peace,' in which the late pianist's influence is readily apparent." - Ken Dryden, AllMusic
Recorded at the Clinton Recording Studio in New York on December 27, 1998.
