Undercurrent is a jazz masterpiece performed by jazz legends Bill Evans (piano) and Jim Hall (guitar). Very few records can take you to a dreamy place like Undercurrent. The album art perfectly encapsulates the brooding and nostalgic mood of the album. Each song offers a unique mix of Bill Evans’ lush piano playing and accompanied by Jim Hall’s vocal guitar phrases. Quite simply, Undercurrent is a warm blanket on a rainy Sunday morning.
