AllMusic Review by

Pianist Bill Evans had had the same musicians in his trio (bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Marty Morell) for over five years when he was caught at a Quebec concert that was broadcast over Canadian radio. This LP finds the trio in its typically explorative, occasionally introspective and generally swinging form. The repertoire, other than "Morning Glory," sticks to material that Evans had previously recorded including several of his own compositions, but these renditions are both fresh and spirited.
