Pianist/composer Bill Evans: "We Will Meet Again". Evans with trumpeter Tom Harrell and tenor/soprano saxophonist Larry Schneider.

This is one of Bill Evans' last formal recording dates and was done in 1979. Evans died in 1980. Evans recorded often with horns but either in an all-star setting or as a sideman but he rarely recorded under his own name with horns. This date was different and he chose two stellar voices to work with because of how well they played together and blended. Trumpeter Tom Harrell has in the years after this date become one of the finest and most original voices of the trumpet and soprano/tenor saxophonist Larry Schneider is more of a journeyman player but displays much substance in his playing. The rest of the members are Bill Evans' trio with bassist Mark Johnson and drum ace Joe LaBarbera. All of the tunes are Bill's and some are new plus a couple go back to his early career like "Five" and "Peri's Scope". The final tune is dedicated to Evans' recently departed brother Harry and is a piano solo called "We Will Meet Again". Enjoy this rare quintet outing by a master player and composer: Bill Evans.
