Interesting! I've had the Vol 1 LP since the seventies and have always wondered about Vol 2.

"Who could keep up with it."

Man, I've been waiting for someone great to say that. It's really a load off.

Jon Foley

"At Town Hall" is one of the great Evans albums, and an unjustly neglected one. The Evans/Israels/Wise trio is, for me, his finest group, perhaps equalled only by the Evans/Israels/Larry Bunker trio. Scott LaFaro was a great bassist, but Chuck Israels meshed with Evans' style better than any other bassist, and he was (and is) an outstanding soloist. Just listen.

What of Arnold Wise, though? He's so wonderful on this record, I'd love to know more about him. (Wasn't he English ? Maybe not).

Jon Foley

I first saw Chuck Israels and Arnie Wise together as part of the Steve Kuhn Trio in the late 50's. They were all college students at the time in Boston.
For some more information on them, see Chuck Israels' website - http://www.chuckisraels.com - and look at the Biography and Photos sections.
