At the time this album was recorded in 1956, Bill Evans was a pianist known only to a few insiders and those fans who had heard him featured with George Russell and Tony Scott. An introverted personality who felt unready for the spotlight, Evans had to be persuaded that his personal harmonic and rhythmic sense and his profound lyricism were worthy of a full showcase on one of the era's leading independent labels. Fortunately he consented and this strong session, featuring future Evans trio drummer Paul Motian and the initial recording of signature compositions "Waltz for Debby" and "Five," turned out to be the first chapter in one of the most acclaimed and influential careers in the history of jazz and the piano trio. - Concord Music

“Bill Evans' debut as a leader found the 27-year-old pianist already sounding much different than the usual Bud Powell-influenced keyboardists of the time. Even in 1956 (more than a year before he joined the Miles Davis Sextet), Evans had his own chord voicings and a lyrical yet swinging style.” - AllMusic
