"Portrait in Jazz" (Riverside RLP12-315) was Bill Evans’ third album as a leader, following New Jazz Conceptions (1956) and Everybody Digs Bill Evans (1958). It was also Evans’ first LP with the talented bassist Scott LaFaro, who would tragically die in a car crash in 1961. This CD is completed by a different take of “Autumn Leaves”, which was issued on the Mono version of the LP, as well as by the original version of “Blue in Green”, recorded by Bill Evans with Miles Davis for the classic album "Kind of Blue".
