“Conversations with Myself is a 1963 album by American jazz musician Bill Evans. Recording with Glenn Gould's piano, CD 318, at studio sessions on February 6 and 9, and May 20, 1963, Evans used the then controversial method of overdubbing three different yet corresponding piano tracks for each song.” – Wiki

“A classic of its kind. For this Verve project, Conversations with Myself, Bill Evans recorded three piano parts via overdubbing. Aptly titled, the music on this LP has a surprising amount of spontaneity, with Evans constantly reacting to what he had just recorded, and the results are sometimes haunting. The highlights include "How About You," "The Love Theme from 'Spartacus," "Blue Monk," and "Just You, Just Me."” – All Music

Garnering a 5 star review from Downbeat in 1963, and a Grammy, Conversations With Myself was an instant classic for the jazz community. Evans work on the ten tunes included here is truly inspired and amazing to behold. In each song, it is as if three distinctive "sides" or "personalities" of Bill Evans are playing together...each keenly aware of what the others are doing, and perhaps more importantly, will do. Evans' amazing musical comprehension is given center stage while running through classic jazz sides like "'Round Midnight," "Stella By Starlight" and "Just You, Just Me." "Blue Monk" showcases a muscularity to Evans' playing that he rarely displayed, while the "Love Theme From Spartacus" showcases Evans' signature use of space, time and inference.” All About Jazz
