Evans in England is due on limited edition 2-LP vinyl on Record Store Day, Saturday, April 13, with 2-CD and digital versions arriving one week later on April 19. The album transports listeners back to 1969, when the introspective Evans (1929-1980) was joined in his familiar trio setting by bassist Eddie Gomez and guitarist Marty Morell for a stand at Ronnie Scott’s in December 1969. The recording was captured a year into the tenure of what would become Evans’ longest-running Trio. In the tradition of such previous Evans projects as Live at Art D’Lugoff’s Top of the Gate (2012), Some Other Time (2016), and Another Time (2017), Evans in England is a major discovery. It features Evans’ earliest recordings of “The Two Lonely People” and “Sugar Plum” as well as moving renditions of Miles Davis’ “So What” (introduced with Evans on 1959’s landmark Kind of Blue) and the pianist’s own compositions like “Re: Person I Knew” and “Waltz for Debby.” The 18-track, 2-disc set also features standards like “What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life,” “Come Rain or Come Shine,” “My Foolish Heart,” and “Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me).” The vinyl version has been mastered by Bernie Grundman and pressed at RTI. The accompanying book features essays by Resonance’s Zev Feldman and journalist Marc Myers; interviews with Gomez, Morell and filmmaker Leon Terjanian (who brought the private tapes to the label’s attention); and rare photographs.
