ANFTD #114: Joe LaBarbera


Reading Joe’s memoir about his time in the Bill Evans Trio is absolutely revelatory. On this episode, Joe shares with Dave his insights both about Evans’s artistic vision and practice, and also about his broader work as a drummer and bandleader. This episode contains unreleased recordings of Bill Evans with Marc Johnson and Joe LaBarbera from the late 1970s and early 80s. Fascinating and revealing audio.
