After bassist Scott LaFaro’s tragic death in a car accident in July of 1961, Bill Evans was devastated and didn’t feel capable of forming a new trio. The late 1961-1962 formation heard here was a transition group, with bassist Chuck Israels attempting to fill the void left by LaFaro and drummer Paul Motian still on drums (in 1963 he would be Breplaced by Larry Bunker which set the stage for Bill Evans’ second well-known trio). Presented here are the two studio LPs by the Evans-Israels-Motian group, originally issued on the albums Moon Beams (Riverside RLP9428) and How My Heart Sings!(Riverside RLP9473).
