Considered a pivotal album in jazz, this 1960 release from pianist Bill Evans marked the debut of his classic but short-lived trio, bassist Scott LaFaro and drummer Paul Motian. Tragically, LaFaro would die in a car accident less than two years after Portrait In Jazz was recorded, plunging Evans into a deep depression that kept him away from music entirely for many months.

“… gets you every which way. At its least great, it is merely brilliant … what makes Evans extra-extra-special is the way his playing drags you in and shares the vulnerability at its core. Oh, the humanity!” – MOJO

“… one of the great masterpieces of modern music, presenting the pianist’s new trio with the young, phenomenal bassist Scott LaFaro … it seemed to Evans that he had found his ultimate trio, with a bassist that could play with an equal level of technique and imagination as the leader and his drummer, Motian, who had already been playing with the pianist for a number of years … a must have.” – All About Jazz
