“Conversations with Myself” is a 1963 album by jazz musician Bill Evans. It was his first solo album for Verve Records.
A classic of its kind, Evans utilized three different studio sessions to subsequently deploy the then controversial method of “overdubbing” tracks: three different yet corresponding piano tracks for each song.
Aptly titled, the music on this LP has a surprising amount of spontaneity, with Evans constantly reacting to what he had just recorded, and the results are astonishing and sometimes haunting.
1964 Grammy Award winner. Five Star Downbeat rating. One of the truly great recordings in all of jazz history.
