Waltz For Debby alone is a masterpiece so when I saw this it was easy to take the chance on comparison. Overall a perfect evolution of his art on the 1st and the DSD is icing on the cake...recommended to fans of W4D
This is a great recording. Not polished like today’s recordings but more real. It feels as though I am in the room with the musicians.
This album is a best seller to have. The beauty ot the piano sound is magnificent and a beautiful purity about the voice of Monica Zetterlund songer. I love her voice a lot. When you listen to this album, all emotion is present because of this preserved sound quality i judge so analog. I recommend it highly.
After going through treatment for drug addiction, pianist Bill Evans went home to his mother in Ormond Beach Florida. One day there was a package on the doorstep, containing an Open Reel Tape from Sweden. It was the producer Göte Wilhelmsson who had taken a wild chance, sending Monica's version of "Waltz for Debbie". Bill Evans, who was in a rather poor shape, got overwhelmed. He had never imagined someone singing his song, at least not that way, so he wrote a four-page (!) long answer. "I do not usually throw superlatives around me but I'm genuinely excited about Monica Zetterlund. Love her, I just love her voice ... Suddenly I long coming to Sweden.” The rest is history….. In August 1964, during a 4 hour session, the album “Waltz for Debbie” was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden. This album is considered among one the best Swedish-produced jazz discs ever made. So, when HDTT now give us the opportunity to enjoy this great album, directly from the master tapes, no one should hesitate – buy it! Thank you!
