Gone are any vestiges of virtuostic flights-of-fancy, and (for some, thankfully!) his tendencies for vocalization. The result is an astonishingly beautiful recording of a smattering of standard ballads with a few folk songs. Make no mistake, this is not a light-hearted swinging affair but a contemplative unhurried performance. A completely different musical exploration than Bill Evans's Alone, but equally enjoyable for the honest, bare-bones approach that is most effective in allowing each tune to shine through.
