Homecoming is a live album by jazz pianist Bill Evans with Marc Johnson and Joe LaBarbera recorded at the Southeastern Louisiana University in 1979 but not released until 1999 on the Milestone label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Rick Anderson awarded the album 4 stars and states "This disc is a valuable historical document, but it's also a genuine pleasure to listen to".[2] The All About Jazz review by Douglas Payne stated "Homecoming is a rich, instructive insight into the genius of this already over-recorded piano wonder — for hardcore devotees and the mildly interested alike... Homecoming is worth coming home to".[3]
