Following collaborative albums with Cannonball Adderley, Eric Dolphy, Shelly Mann, Jim Hall and others, Evans recorded the concept album ‘Conversations With Myself’ for Verve Records in 1963. Produced in a permissive atmosphere with Creed Taylor and engineer Ray Hall in February 1963 and subtitled ‘A Searching Look into the Genius of Bill Evans’, the album features a multi-tracked Evans playing only with himself on piano, with each track featuring an improvised second and third piano line, overdubbed atop what Evans laid down first.
