This edition of the Bill Evans Trio is very special as it features his favourite drummer Philly Joe Jones, who was a part of Bill's working trio for a short time in 1967. Evans was usually introspective and romantic but Philly Joe brought out Bill's more outgoing characteristics and we hear a swinging, burning and happy Bill Evans on these tracks recorded in August of 1967 at New York's Village Vanguard. Anchoring the trio is the strong and virtuoso bassist Eddie Gomez. "California, Here I Come" was a very welcome re-issue from Verve in 2004 as it contains some prime Evans at his outgoing best.
