Evans, Bill -& Monica Zetterlund-

Waltz For Debby

The inventive jazz pianist and noted Miles Davis collaborator Bill Evans made lasting impact from the mid-195os. After a New Jersey childhood disrupted by his fathers alcoholism, Evans obtained a scholarship to study composition in Louisiana. Arrivinging in New York in the 50s, he began working with the composer and multi-instrumentalist, George Russell, releasing his debut solo album, New Jazz Conceptions, in 1956. Evans true breakthrough came through his membership of Miles Davis sextet, where his intense and melodic playing helped make Kind of Blue an outstanding landmark, during a time when he was also contributing to Chet Bakers self-titled LP. Following collaborations with Cannonball Adderly, Shelley Manne and Gary McFarlane, the 1964 Swedish release Waltz For Debby saw Evans backing Swedish actress and vocalist Monica Zetterlund on a lovely collection of cool, smooth jazz ballads. Zetterlunds quietly soaring vocals add a stunning melodic contrast to Evans playing, helped along by understated rhythmic work from bassist Chuck Israels and drummer Larry Bunker.
