Affinity


This delightful record by Bill Evans and the wonderful Toots Thielemans was recorded in 1978 and is the first Evans release to feature bassist extraordinaire Marc Johnson. This is an amazing album and some of Evans' most inspired later-period playing. Evans's piano and Thielemans's harmonica are mellow and meditative. Evans piano blends beautifully with Toot's warm melodiscism, and the two jazz masters are in rare form throughout the album. "I do it for love is my favorite song."
Check out this record. If you like jazz like I do, you will love it.
