Listen: Bill Evans – Some Other Time (The Lost Session from the Black Forest)
I missed this one…damn.
This lost session was released on vinyl exclusively for RSD, and I missed it. Fortunately, the digital version is available from HDTracks here.
This is 90+ minutes of previously unreleased music from Evans, bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jack DeJohnette. Recorded on June 20, 1968 – this the only studio recording available with this lineup, so is a truly exciting discovery for fans.
I’m still absorbing this now, but the 192/24 digital version sounds excellent. The kit is a bit quiet, but otherwise a great recording.
