Vinyl LP Reissue!

Explorations is an album by jazz musician Bill Evans originally released on the Riverside label in 1961. The album won the Billboard Jazz Critics Best Piano LP poll for 1961. The 2nd album by the original Bill Evans group was recorded after the pianist, bassist Scott LaFaro, and drummer Paul Motian had spent a year working together and honing the telepathy that established a new standard for trio interaction.

Featuring intimate readings of several standards plus 3 compositions from the jazz world that became synonymous with the trio's sounds, the album was cited years later by Evans as among his own favorite recordings.

"Explorations is an extraordinary example of the reach and breadth of this trio at its peak." -Thom Jurek,
