    Probably my worst pressing from the Acoustic Sounds series, although that doesn't mean it's bad, just okay.

    My copy does have non-fill like others are complaining about which has never happened before from my experience with QRP so it is a shock. I can forgive that as on my copy its rather small and not too distracting if you focus on the music. The sound is what disappoints me, I find it kind of dull and unfocused. I can hear Evans' piano well, but it's like the bass player is barely there, and the drums sound okay but could use more definition. Although I don't have anything to compare it to on vinyl- I even find myself preferring the streaming version because it gives all instruments room and energy. I am disappointed but I'm glad other people have had better experiences overall. Every other pressing I own in this series is heads above this one, even though this is still alright. The jacket is also beautiful.

      Absolute knockout cut by RKS. Super hi-fi, love the way he's able to translate hi end. Great imaging for a Van Gelder recording. It's a winner.

        Like other user, my copy is also warped and with non fills. Good sound though. It all comes down to QRP' pressing plant: they are being more and more careless with their pressings. Back to Amazon it goes...

          Was new from Acoustic Sounds, $38US.

          IMO, Bill Evans does his best playing live. His studio improv is slightly reserved at times, shorter solos and taking fewer chances.

          The trio is nicely recorded with some dynamic piano(some distortion on transients). It isn't quite as good as the best live recordings I've heard from this trio.

          A decent pressing, super clean vinyl and no detectable glitches. There's some ghosting in the space between tracks.The artwork and glossy tip on jacket are stunningly reproduced here.

          3.75 stars.

            One of the best pressings for Bill Evans fans. Feels like it's going to be a fan collectible

              I can't describe the perfection of this pressing. Everything is amazing, you can feel the trio in front of you. Drums are impressive, bass sounds calid, but the piano is the star. No more to say, buy this if you can.

                Beautiful music, excellent cover quality, great pressing and super cheap price compared to other AS releases. What's not to love?

                  Acoustic Sounds delivers yet again, love this record and packaging, excellent all around - its interesting to hear how this trio plays Israel compared to the first trio

                    Excellent music. Fantastic sounding bass and drums. Piano sounds muffled, distorted and rough around the edges.

                    I’ve gotten used to perfect clean pressings from QRP - unfortunately this has come with slight non fill and a paper scuff mark (despite the poly lined sleeve). I would return however not really feasible from NZ.

                    Happy to have this for the music but unfortunately frustrated overall.

                      My copy is absolutely outstanding. Perfectly clean and incredibly detailed and dynamic. Just gorgeous.
