In fact, the "Bill Evans Album" would have been more satisfying if Bill had stuck with the Fender Rhodes for the duration: those stretches are the highlights of his playing on this occasion-arguably the best mainstream jazz ever recorded on the ubiquitous 1970s' instrument that, however brief an affair it enjoyed with Bill Evans, is still seen as a useful keyboard. It's actually remarkable that Bill Evans' music and reputation continue to rise to the top in discussions of jazz piano, given the damage to his piano voice-inflicted, first, by Verve (with a "bottled-up," frequency-limited piano sound that makes for especially painful listening on, for example, the "With Symphony Orchestra" recording) and, secondly, by Columbia (which was now confining its. jazz activities to electric, "fusion" music produced by Miles, McGlaughlin, Corea, Hancock).
