After the original Palo Alto 2 LP set of this compilation in tribute to Bill Evans lapsed from print, it was reissued as a single CD in 1991, but there are some serious flaws with this edition. Tracks by Denny Zeitlin, Andy LaVerne and Chick Corea were dropped to squeeze the music onto one CD and the beautiful packaging with color photos of the artists and a warm remembrance by Evans' long time manager Helen Keane are replaced by an unimpressive single sheet insert. For those reasons look for a copy of the original release and skip this poorly packaged CD.
