An excerpt from Bill Evans The Complete Live At The Village Vanguard 1961 liner notes by original producer, Orrin Keepnews:
"Somewhat unexpectedly, I had no problem getting Evans to agree [to the recording] – he was entirely aware of what this trio was creating, and undoubtedly even more worried than I about how fragile their unity might be. It was realistic to plan to work on Sunday; the Vanguard routinely scheduled two matinee sets that day in addition to a standard evening program. I was not concerned about working on the very last day of the engagement; apparently I was not even disturbed by the unavailability of our staff engineer, Ray Fowler, since I find that I don’t even remember why he was not on hand. (Unfortunately, I will never be able to ask him – Ray died within the past year following a sudden heart attack – but I suspect it was something as routine but important as an already-scheduled vacation; Ray had a large family.) In his place we brought in Dave Jones, originally known to us as an Ohio-based traditional jazz enthusiast, who had recorded and then sold to Riverside an LP by the intriguingly-named “Dixieland Rhythm Kings of Dayton, Ohio" (Gene Mayl's Dixieland Rhythm Kings). Davey actually was more broad-based than that: he had engineered several dates for Jac Holzman’s pioneering pop-folk Elektra label."
