At Shelly's Manne-Hole is a live album by American jazz pianist Bill Evans, released in 1963 as his last recording for Riverside Records. The trio featured Chuck Israels, who followed Scott LaFaro on bass in autumn 1961, and Larry Bunker on drums, who had just joined the reformed trio after Paul Motian's departure. The leadoff track, 'Isn't It Romantic,' is one of Evans' finest moments, with the gently swinging theme leading into a strong, if restrained, solo from Israels. Over Bunker's sensitive brush work, Evans comments briefly and beautifully on the theme before returning to the head. The band's readings of such classics as 'Round Midnight,' 'Stella By Starlight,' and 'All the Things You Are' are wonderful, but it is the lesser-known tracks, such as 'Swedish Pastry' and the aforementioned 'Isn't It Romantic,' that makes this recording so valuable. Jazz is rarely as sensitive or as melodic as this. Another classic from Bill Evans and company.
