This stunning 20-track set is the third Resonance Collection of unreleased material featuring pianist Evans' short-lived, brilliant 1968 trio with bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jack DeJohnette. The deluxe package includes an essay by veteran critic Brian Priestley, new interviews with Gomez, DeJohnette, Chick Corea and Evans' good friend Chevy Chase, and a unique album cover artwork by legendary artist David Stone Martin. Live at Ronnie Scott's includes 20 fascinating tracks from Jack DeJohnette's personal archives, recorded during the Evans Trio's month-long '68 residency at the Soho Club of the saxophonist impresario of the same name. (It's the second live album by Resonance to be released from this location: Evans in England 2019 is from a stand at Scott's in 1969 with Gomez and drummer Marty Morell) Recordings of the Evans-Gomez-DeJohnette cast are as much in demand as they are rare. DeJohnette was a particularly uncomplicated accompanist for Evans, as he was a pianist before taking over the drums. Despite their chemistry, the trio only played together for six months. During their stay with Scott, Miles Davis took a look at the band, and the trumpeter quickly recruited DeJohnette for his new group. In late 1968, Morell was hired by Evans as his replacement, and he drummed behind the pianist until 1974. DeJohnette recalls his brief but memorable time with Evans and says, "The music was at a really high creative level and I'm glad I documented that and the tape was good enough to have Resonance release it
