Waxtime Records Dave Pike Quartet Featuring Bill Evans: Pikes Peak 180g. Limited Edition High-definition Premium Vinyl Pressing
This LP was vibraphonist DAVE PIKE's second recording as a leader. Pike is joined by bassist Herbie Lewis, drummer Walter Perkins, and most notably pianist BILL EVANS. It was one of the pianist's first sessions after the tragic death of his bassist, Scott LaFaro, and gives listeners a rare opportunity to hear Evans this late in his career as a sideman. The music is fairly spontaneous. An excellent if generally overlooked straight-ahead set. (Scott Yanow) DAVE PIKE, vibes; BILL EVANS, piano; HERBIE LEWIS, bass; WALTER PERKINS, drums. New York, February 6 (tracks A3 & B2) & February 8 (tracks A1-A2 & B1), 1962. *BONUS TRACKS: EDDIE COSTA, vibes; BILL EVANS, piano; WENDELL MARSHALL, bass; PAUL MOTIAN, drums.
