Bill Evans WALTZ FOR DEBBY (1962)

Fuck yes, Debby.  Recorded in 1961 before his bassist passed---it might be just the narrative-bro in me but I love the bass here, it is so in the pocket, you actually have to listen for it most of the time, and it is just intuitive, supportive, gentle and melodic.   The cymbal work on "Detour Ahead".... I am a homer for Bill Evans, but LaFaro and Motian take it to the sublime.
