I've had this album for several years now and am also familiar with Benoits earlier more "poppish" work. Letter to Evan is more mainstream oriented than most of his previous works. This however does not detract from what is truly a beautiful album. If you enjoyed "Waiting for Spring" you'll love this album, which I'd say is slightly more up tempo. I saw David Benoit live in London in 1996 and at the show (in a tiny club) he said that of all his compositions to that point, "Letter to Evan" was his favourite, and then he went on to play it. Live and in the flesh! A great musician and a very recommendable album.

David Benoit did this Cd mainly for a friend, Bill Evans. He died while his son was about 16. Letter to Evan and Knit for Mary F. are Bill Evan's compostions.
Waiting for love is a guitar based song at the beginning, then it moves into piano.
Looking over eastlake. Wow. Its great! It so jazzy and complex, and not to mention fun to listen to.
Take 6. Thats a great one to.
This is a relly good, album by David Benoit. GO FOR IT!

I am writing this in the hopes that David Benoit will read it. David: please, please, please give us, your fans, more of this music! For me, it is your crowning achievement.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if this genre of music were more widely disseminated. In my opinion this is Benoit at his finest. Bravo and encore, please!!

It's a shame this work is only available through the Amazon affiliates. Its a very nice work, as another reviewer said, similar to Waiting for Spring. The reason I chose to review this piece is because there are actually two works on it that touched me. Letter to Evan was Bill Evan's musical letter to his son Evan upon passing away. But the piece that touched me personally was On Golden Pond. It reminds me of my father, who also passed away. I personally don't really care for DB's smooth jazz works, just these more touching ones. His graceful, melodic hand on the piano is what has really caused him to stand out through the years. This is especially true, again, on this work.

Fine early work from a great classical artist.
I've always loved Benoit's simple work. Acoustic music always has a place in my heart. David caught my eye with the great cd "Waiting for Spring". the classic "I remember Bill" was a prime example of his superb acoustic trio capabilities.
Knowing that he idolized the great Bill Evans, I had to have this in my collection. And he did not disappoint me in any way.
