Bill Evans

In the continuing absence of my brain, which appears to have gone on a backpacking holiday in Patagonia, I thought I might embed this Bill Evans track, which I think is one of the most deliciously melancholy pieces of piano jazz I know. The overdubbing is a mystery to me, though, and is nowhere to be found on the album version I have. What is it doing here, anyone know?

I don't know what album you have, but this piece is "N.Y.C.'s No Lark" (written by Evans)and the entire album was done with two tracks overdubbed over the first piano track.
"Conversations With Myself" is the record, and that was the POINT of that 1963 album, as the title suggests. Thanks for your blog!

The version on Verse Jazz Masters 5 doesn't have the overdub.
