  • Bill Evans's second date as a leader was a breakthrough session, firmly establishing him as a highly influential new voice in jazz near the tail end of 1958. His first solo record, 1956's NEW JAZZ CONCEPTIONS, while a respectable effort, was a relatively pallid affair, and left Evans feeling dissatisfied with his playing and "conception" both. Despite Riverside label owner/producer Orrin Keepnews' persistent entreaties, Evans would not return to the studio until he was ready.
  • "Minority," the Gigi Gryce hard bop original which opens EVERYBODY DIGS.., demonstrates that he was indeed ready, and then some. Anyone who thinks of Evans as a neo-impressionist will be startled by the pianist's hard driving swing here, propelled by the ace Miles Davis rhythm section of bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones. Evan's famously golden tone, both hard and highly malleable, glows on the breathlessly slow "Young And Foolish," with its astonishly beautiful coda, and the two solo forays taken from Bernstein's On the Town --"Lucky To Be Me" and the celebrated improvisation "Peace Piece," based on the Satie-like opening chords to "Some Other Time." An extra CD bonus is the inclusion of the original "Some Other Time."
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (p.77) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[Evans] plays aggressive, but also tender and warm....A must for all Evans fans."
