Bill evans at shelly s manne hole 1963 album

At Shelly's Manne-Hole (or more completely, Bill Evans Trio at Shelly's Manne-Hole, Hollywood, California) is a live album by American jazz pianist Bill Evans, released in 1963 as his last recording for the Riverside label. The trio featured Chuck Israels, who followed Scott LaFaro on bass in autumn 1961, and Larry Bunker on drums, who just joined the reformed trio, after Paul Motian had left.



Writing for Allmusic, music critic Daniel Gioffre wrote of the album: "This particular trio may lack some of the sheer combustive force of the better-known lineup, but it is, if possible, even more sensitive, melancholic, and nostalgic than the previous band... Jazz is rarely as sensitive or as melodic as this. Another classic from Bill Evans and company."
