Bill Evans / Jim Hall ‎– Undercurrent

Featuring the great jazz pianist Bill Evans and renowned jazz guitarist Jim Hall. A supurb recording.

While Evans managed to sit down for a few one-off takes between LaFaro's passing and these April-May 1962 dates, he largely remained on hiatus and abstained from recording. Whether it owes to the intimate pairing, he and Hall's brotherly chemistry, or the exquisite selection of program material, the results consistently come across as the equivalent of a private meditation — such is the level of introspective depth and quietly shaded interplay throughout.In tackling standards such as Rodgers and Hart's "My Funny Valentine" and the Broadway classic "Darn That Dream," as well as the Hall original "Romain," the pair traverses complex harmonies with the astute elegance of a figure skater.
