Overview

This is one of her most critically acclaimed albums with both Allmusic and all About Jazz giving it 4½ stars out of five. The album includes two Evans' compositions recently discovered by her husband, bassist Marc Johnson, on a cassette that Bill Evans gave him shortly before he died: "Evanesque" and "Here Is Something for You". Elias actually recreated "Evanesque" from the elements of Evans’ original composition. Elias also wrote lyrics to the song "Here Is Something for You", incorporating allusions to other tunes and pieces associated with Evans. She performs vocal parts on six of the seventeen cuts.
