A newly unearthed studio session from the iconic pianist Bill Evans,' Some Other Time: The Lost Session from The Black Forest' is a landmark discovery for jazz listeners around the world.

This Bill Evans trio session was recorded on June 20, 1968, nearly 10 years after the legendary Kind of Blue sessions with Miles Davis, and five days after the famous live performance at the 1968 Montreux Jazz Festival, which was released on Verve and won a Grammy. This is the only studio album recorded of this trio and features Evans in trio, duo and solo configurations with jazz greats bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jack DeJohnette.

The recordings on this album constitute the material from a June 20th, 1968 studio session recorded by Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer (HGBS) and Joachim-Ernst Brendt in Germany’s Black Forest. This is no ordinary recording. This enthralling Bill Evans session was recorded five days after a famous performance at the 1968 Montreux jazz festival by Evans, bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jack DeJohnette. Verve’s Montreux live recording won a Grammy, but this studio session has been in the vaults ever since.

Some Other Time is a newly unearthed Bill Evans studio album, initially recorded in 1968 in Germany but not released until now. It still sounds fresh and alive almost 50 years later.

Some Other Time: The Lost Session From the Black Forest was recorded when Evans was on tour in Europe with a trio that included Eddie Gomez on bass and, on drums, a young Jack DeJohnette, who would go on to much greater fame with Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett, and as a leader himself. It was cut between stops on a European tour by German producer Joachim-Ernst Berendt, with the idea that the rights and a release plan would be figured out later. This particular group had only been documented on record just once, At the Montreux Jazz Festival, recorded five days prior to this date. So the existence of an unheard studio album by the trio is a significant addition to the Evans story.

The piano/bass/drums trio setting is where Evans did his most important and lasting work. Eddie Gomez heard on this album, was a steady partner of Evans for a decade, and the level of empathy between the two players is something to behold. On “What Kind of Fool Am I?,” Gomez’s dancing lines dart between Evans’ bass notes, almost serving as a third hand on the piano. On the immortal title track, Gomez seems like half a conversation, accenting and commenting on Evans’ melodic flourishes. For his part, DeJohnette offers tasteful and low-key accompaniment, heavy on the brushwork and soft textures on cymbals he was more of a role-player at this point in his career. But the three together feel like a true unit.

Evans’ art has endured in part because he has a brilliant combination of formal sophistication and accessibility; critics and his fellow musicians heard the genius in his approach to chords, his lightness of touch, and his open-eared support of others in his band, while listeners could put on his records and simply bask in their beauty, how Evans’ continual foregrounding of emotion made the sad songs extra wrenching and the happy ones extra buoyant.

William John Evans (better known as Bill Evans) was one of the most famous and influential American jazz pianists of the 20th century. His use of impressionist harmony, inventive interpretation of traditional jazz repertoire, and trademark rhythmically independent, "singing" melodic lines influenced a generation of pianists.
