Dave Pike collaborating with Bill Evans
in this extremely rare Japanese pressing.

Beautiful, beautiful early work from Dave Pike—a cascading array of vibes and piano—stretched out over some longer tracks that skip with a lyrical and modal groove throughout! Dave’’s working here with a group that includes Bill Evans on piano, Herbie Lewis on bass, and Walter Perkins on drums—and although his style is a bit more restrained than on his later funk albums, it also proves to be a wonderful match for the fluid colors of Evans’’ work on piano—as well as Perkins’’ light and playful work on the drum kit. There’’s a simplicity here that’’s really great—not as “over your head” as the Dave Pike Set of later years, and with a gentle grace that shows what a keenly mature player Pike was, even at this early age. Titles include “Why Not”, “Vierd Blues”, “Besame Mucho”, and “Wild Is The Wind”.
