Everybody Still Digs Bill Evans: A Career Retrospective (1956-1980) marks the first-ever career- spanning collection of music from legendary American jazz pianist Bill Evans. Housed in a deluxe 5-CD box set, and featuring over 60 tracks that spotlight Evans’ exceptional work as a leader and co-leader, the collection includes a special bonus, a previously-unreleased live performance from 1975, captured at Oil Can Harry’s in Vancouver, B.C. The recently-unearthed concert recording was restored by Plangent Processes, and will also be available as a standalone album, on vinyl, CD and digital formats, as On A Friday Evening.

The box set spans the pianist’s Riverside, Milestone, Fantasy, Verve, Warner Bros., and Elektra/Musician catalogs, and features such collective personnel as Tony Bennett, Cannonball Adderley, Kenny Burrell, Stan Getz, Zoot Sims, Eddie Gomez, Freddie Hubbard, Lee Konitz, and Philly Joe Jones, among many others. The five-CD collection comes housed in a fabric-wrapped, hard-cover book, containing 48 pages of photos and ephemera, as well as new liner notes from the GRAMMY ® Award-winning writer, radio host, and music journalist, Neil Tesser, who offers insight into the life and career of Evans through recent and archival interviews with a variety of subjects, as well as a deep survey of the box set’s tracks. Also available across digital and streaming platforms, the Everybody Still Digs Bill Evans compilation was produced by Nick Phillips, and includes newly-remastered audio by GRAMMY ® -winning engineer, Paul Blakemore.
