Those tapes were used here as well but the sound here on double 45 mastered by Bernie Grundman kills the original.While we all wait for reissues of the early career original Village Vanguard sessions (one from Mobile Fidelity and one from Analogue Productions), this first edition of what turned out to be one of Evans' final live performances, is currently available and very highly recommended for both music and sound Sound 10/10 Music 10/10 Michael Fremmer Analogplanet.com

Bill Evans was an American jazz pianist and composer who mostly worked in a trio setting. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time, and is considered by some to have been the most influential post-World War II jazz pianist. Evans's use of impressionist harmony, inventive interpretation of traditional jazz repertoire, block chords, and trademark rhythmically independent, "singing" melodic lines continue to influence jazz pianists today.
Marc Johnson is an American jazz bass player, composer, and band leader. In 1978, Johnson joined legendary pianist Bill Evans in what would be Evans' last trio. Johnson toured and recorded with Evans until the death of the pianist in 1980. His many recording credits since then include discs with Joe Lovano, Michael Brecker, Stan Getz, Bob Brookmeyer, Gary Burton, John Abercrombie, Bill Frisell, Pat Metheny, Eliane Elias, Enrico Pieranunzi, Joey Baron, Philly Joe Jones, and many others.
Joe LaBarbera is an American jazz drummer and composer. He is best known for his recordings and live performances with the trio of pianist Bill Evans in the final years of Evans' career. Prior to joining Evans he worked in the quartet of Chuck Mangione and Joe Farrell. After Evans' death in 1980, Joe joined singer Tony Bennett.
"With bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Joe La Barbera, Evans had one of the strongest trios of his career..." -Scott Yanow, allmusic.com:
