Resonance Records is proud to announce the release of Bill Evans - Another Time: The Hilversum Concert, a spectacular never-before-heard live recording by the Bill Evans Trio featuring bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jack DeJohnette recorded in Hilversum, Holland, by the Netherlands Radio Union (NRU) in the summer of 1968. Another Time is Resonance's first follow-up release to the widely celebrated Bill Evans Trio album, Some Other Time: The Lost Session from the Black Forest. Resonance is pleased once again to release this entirely new Bill Evans discovery in full cooperation with the Bill Evans Estate and Eddie Gomez and Jack DeJohnette and Universal Music Group, the parent company of Verve Records, the label Evans was signed to in 1968.

Bill Evans - Another Time: The Hilversum Concert, recorded on June 22, 1968, just two days after Some Other Time, provides a fitting counterpoint to that remarkable album. Interestingly, these two recordings were made one day on either side of the summer solstice and they each seem to embody attributes of their respective seasons. Where Some Other Time, recorded at the legendary MPS studios in Villingen, Germany, is imbued with an introspective, vernal beauty, Another Time was recorded as a live concert, and is a recording remarkable not only for the three musicians' ebullience, freedom and summer-infused heat; but notable also for its exceptional recording quality utilizing the then state of the art recording techniques of the NRU. Producer Zev Feldman and Executive Producer, George Klabin, regard Another Time as the best-sounding Bill Evans album on Resonance; perhaps one of Evans's best sounding live recordings ever.

The configuration of this special edition of the Bill Evans Trio - featuring Jack DeJohnette newly introduced as a co-equal counterpart to Evans and the redoubtable Eddie Gomez — was not widely recorded before Some Other Time. Indeed, before Resonance released Some Other Time, only one previous aural document existed memorializing this version of the trio, which had a life-span of only six months: a live recording made at the Montreux Festival, a concert that was held roughly a week before Some Other Time and Another Time were recorded.

Marc Myers, a Wall Street Journal contributor, music columnist, and Anatomy of a Song author, writes that Another Time "is a frighteningly flawless and dynamic work by Evans." In his essay for 2016's Some Other Time, Myers noted that the trio with Jack DeJohnette represented a new model for Evans, observing "During the musical discourse between Mr. DeJohnette and Evans, we hear clearly the sound that Evans wanted on drums going forward." Dutch jazz authority Bert Vuijsje cited Brian Priestly's notes from the Montreux album, noting that DeJohnette is, "above all, a listening drummer . . . much more extroverted than Evans's previous [drummers]." And Jack DeJohnette's view of this album is sunny: "All of the tracks on this album are really cool. I liked what was happening there." – Press Release
