This double album includes never-before-heard studio recordings by the great Bill Evans with captivating performances by Evans in solo, duo, and trio settings. It is one of the most extraordinary musical archeological finds.
The recordings on this album constitute the material from a June 20, 1968 session recorded by Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer (HGBS) and Joachim-Ernst Brendt in Germany’s Black Forest that was originally intended for release on HGBS’s legendary MPS label but for some reason were never released.
This is no ordinary recording. It’s a remarkable document of an under-represented period in the career of one of the icons of Jazz.

Merging Horus and HAPI, Ayre QA9 Pro
For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, NAB master tape was played on a Nagra-T?modified?with?high-end?tube playback electronics, wired with OCC?silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra T has one of the best transports ever made, having four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head. We did an analog transfer for each high-res sampling and each format (192kHz, DXD 352.8kHz, DSD, DSD128, DSD256) was created using Merging Horus/Hapi and a dCS Vivaldi clock
