Turn Out the Stars: Final Village Vanguard Recordings

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow

    Jazz listeners (from the old school)

    you have to like jazz to appreciate this disc. There are six cds within the package that will keep you entertained for quite awhile. Overall very good quality music.

    One of Bill Evans' final outings and very fine listening

    Turn Out the Stars was one of the last recordings Bill made before his untimely death and there is some very special playing here by everyone in the group. His beautiful vision and lovely playing had not left him despite his poor health and this set is definitely a valuable addition to his discography. I recommend everything else he recorded, with special affection for You Must Believe in Spring, Everyone Digs Bill Evans, and the Paris Concert Part 1.
