This release presents the complete Bill Evans trio album Empathy (Verve LPV6-8497). The LP marks the pianist’s first of only two collaborations with drummer Shelly Manne (the second, A Simple Matter of Conviction, was taped in 1966). Also it is included vibes player Dave Pike’s complete quartet LP Pike’s Peak (Epic LA16025), recorded during the same period and extensively featuring Bill Evans. Both LPs present Evans in unusual contexts, and he would never again record the majority of the songs featured here. As a final bonus, a second version of Gordon Jenkins’ “Goodbye”, taken from a quartet session by Evans with Cannonball Adderley.
