“Bill Evans was an American jazz pianist and composer who mostly worked in a trio setting. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time, and is considered by some to have been the most influential post-World War II jazz pianist. Evans's use of impressionist harmony, in-ventive interpretation of traditional jazz repertoire, block chords, and trademark rhythmically inde-pendent, "singing" melodic lines continues to influence jazz pianists today. Unlike many other jazz mu-sicians of his time, Evans never embraced new movements like jazz fusion or free jazz.

The iconic jazz pianist Bill Evans is joined here by none other than bassist Chuck Israels and drummer Larry Bunker for this 1965 recording. The album includes the heart-wrenching "Who Can I Turn To?" alongside "If You Could See Me Now" and Johnny Carisi's "Israel."” – Acoustic Sounds

“Although all eight of the selections heard on this Verve release have been recorded on other occasions by pianist Bill Evans, these renditions hold their own. Teamed up with bassist Chuck Israels and drummer Larry Bunker (his regular trio of 1963-1965), Evans plays definitive versions of such songs as Johnny Carisi's "Israel," "How My Heart Sings," "Who Can I Turn To," and "If You Could See Me Now."” – AllMusic

"Bill Evans, one of the most influential and tragic figures of the post-bop jazz piano, was known for his highly nuanced touch, the clarity of the feeling content of his music and his reform of the chord voicing system pianists used. He recorded over fifty albums as leader and received five Grammy awards... His inescapable influence on the very sound of jazz piano has touched virtually everybody of prominence in the field after him (as well as most of his contemporaries), and he remains a monu-mental model for jazz piano students everywhere, even inspiring a newsletter devoted solely to his mu-sic and influence." — All About Jazz
