And now, something you've been all waiting for.The Bill Evans Trio appearing in London in 1965 for the legendary BBC TV series Jazz 625. Chronologically, this is the third Bill Evans Trio from a lineage of great trios consisting of Chuck Israels on bass and Larry Bunker on drums. The presence of Humphrey Lyttelton as host, a man who has graced Brithsh TV and jazz for decades, only adds to the enjoyment of this musical tour de force. This is "Israel", a beautiful and quite complex minor blues composition by jazz trumpeter Johnny Carisi first performed by the Miles Davis Nonet for its "Birth of The Cool" recordings, along with Bill's "Five" for the closing of this first set.
