This release presents a never before heard performance with excellent sound quality by the great Bill Evans. Recorded live at the Ljubljana Jazz Festival in Ljubljana (then Yugoslavia, now Slovenia’s capital) on June 10, 1972, this is the only known recording of the Bill Evans Trio with English drummer Tony Oxley, celebrated for his free jazz collaborations with such outstanding musicians as Cecil Taylor, John McLaughlin, Gordon Beck, and Anthony Braxton, among others, and for his own work as a leader. Evans and Eddie Gomez were performing as a duo in London early that month when Oxley was invited by the pianist to join them. The result pleased them so much that they decided to play a few concerts together, from which the Ljubljana set seems to be the only complete surviving performance. A single tune from an early June set at Ronnie Scott’s in London also exists, and has been added here as a bonus.
