Christmas week is underway, time to listen to the only vocal performance Bill Evans is know to have recorded. I wish I had thought of posting the audio clip, but full credit goes to Jan Stevens of The Bill Evans Web Pages. Rifftides reader Russ Neff called it to our attention. Click on this link. When you get to the Bill Evans site, click on the word “Here” in the first panel. Prepare to smile.
Bill Crow says
What a nice Christmas present! Good to hear his voice and his laughter again. Thanks!
Bruce Bellingham says
Many thanks for the Bill Evans cut. A real gone cat. Also, I loved the “Thanks for the Memory” with Bob Hope & Shirley Ross. That one gets me a bit misty-eyed. I love rueful people.
Ken Dryden says
I had a feeling it was going to be this track.
For those who don’t own it, is was a previously unissued selection that first appeared in the now out of print Complete Bill Evans Verve boxed set. I won’t say anything further so I won’t spoil the fun for anyone reading the comments prior to listening to the link.
