Homecoming

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
A previously unreleased concert recording by the legendary Bill Evans would be great news anyway, but this one is particularly special because it documents a 1979 performance at Southeastern Louisiana University, Evans' alma mater and a place for which he had especially warm feelings. Accompanied by the young bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Joe La Barbera, Evans plays a generous set of familiar tunes, including such standbys as "Re: Person I Knew," "Turn Out the Stars," and "I Loves You, Porgy."

Accompanied by the young bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Joe La Barbera, Evans plays a generous set of familiar tunes, including such standbys as "Re: Person I Knew," "Turn Out the Stars," and "I Loves You, Porgy." The album's last track is a six-minute interview conducted by Rod Starns. Although the sound quality is iffy -- the stereo balance is tilted markedly to the listener's left and the drums are poorly miked -- the program is excellent and Evans is playing near peak form. Johnson's playing betrays a strong Scott LaFaro influence, especially on his two duets with Evans and on the trio's shimmering performance of "Someday My Prince Will Come." This disc is a valuable historical document, but it's also a genuine pleasure to listen to.
