Recorded October 23, 1968, Greenwich Village, NYC by George Klabin. Allegedly a newly unearthed recording of two previously-unreleased sets, and the only Evans recording ever released from The Village Gate. Vinyl pressing comes in a deluxe hand-numbered lift off box by Ross-Ellis. Limited Edition 1st Pressing of 3000.

According the a recent Wall Street Journal article on this release, the background on Klabin's recording is as follows: "Eight days after jazz pianist Bill Evans opened at New York's Top of the Gate in October 1968, his manager let a determined college student tape the trio. The student arrived early on Oct. 23—lugging a 50-pound, two-track Crown recorder and four pricey mikes—and he left with 90 minutes of near-flawless music. The tape was heard only once on the radio—and then forgotten."

Wonderful package, top quality pressing, heavy weight vinyl and the soundstage is very sweet w/45rpm. The playing is sharp and intimate.

Anyone with the second pressing (1000 copies)? It should be added as a variant of this one
