Jazzhouse is a live album by jazz pianist Bill Evans with Eddie Gómez and Marty Morell recorded at the Jazzhus Montmartre in Copenhagen in 1969 but not released until the 1980s on the Milestone label.[1] The same concert also produced the album You're Gonna Hear From Me.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars and states "Evans sounds relaxed and swinging playing his usual repertoire. All of the songs (mostly standards) have been recorded by Evans at other times but the pianist's many fans certainly will not mind hearing these "alternate" versions".[2]
