It should be mentioned that in addition to capturing some excellent performances, these are high quality recordings with good pianos. I have to disagree about the drums being redundant. When I had the good fortune of hearing that '75 trio in person, the thing that made the biggest impression was the instantaneous, almost telepathic, interplay between the three musicians. Then also, on certain tunes Bill plays extended solo intros, so you get the best of both worlds. Toots plays so well that it's easy to forget that you're listening to a harmonica. Of all the live recordings of Evans that have surfaced in recent years, this compilation is surely among the best.

thanks for posting, loving the duo stuff with Gomez. it's a shame there's nothing with Marty Morell, that trio had the fire!
