The Double Album Live at Top of the Gate features legendary Jazz Pianist Bill Evans and his Jazz Trio featuring Eddie Gomez on Bass and Marty Morell on Drums. Live at Art D’Lugoff’s Top of the Gate from 2xHD and Resonance Records offers listeners a table at the front of the stage for a stellar performance.

You’re about to be transported on October 23, 1968, to Greenwich Village in New York City. Jazz in the 1960s was one of the music’s greatest eras, and thanks to a gentleman named George Klabin, we have this important document of one of its leading talents.

George was only 22 years old at the time, full of passion and engineering skill, when he took advantage of an offer by Evan’s longtime manager, Helen Keane, to record Bill’s new trio. George aired these two fully recorded sets of music one time on his radio show on Columbia University’s WKCR-FM and these tapes have been stored away all these years until now. This newly remastered and revitalized album of the Bill Evans Trio, one of Jazz’s greatest trios, is now available on reel tape.

The lineup that night consisted of three musicians in their prime: Evans, bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Marty Morell. Recorded by George Klabin with an analogue tube console.
