New Jazz Conceptions is the debut album as leader by jazz musician Bill Evans, released in 1957 on Riverside Records. Producer Orrin Keepnews of Riverside Records first determined to record Evans after hearing a tape of his playing. Eleven songs were recorded in the first session, including Evans' own "Waltz for Debby", which would prove to be his most recognized and recorded composition. New Jazz Conceptions was reissued in 2006 with a bonus track.

Bill Evans' debut as a leader found the 27-year-old pianist already sounding much different than the usual Bud Powell-influenced keyboardists of the time. Even in 1956 (more than a year before he joined the Miles Davis Sextet), Evans had his own chord voicings and a lyrical yet swinging style

New Jazz Conceptions. New Jazz Conceptions. As with many other Evans bonus cuts, these lack a bit of the fire of the original album cuts (Give the poor guy a break - he did not like recording and obviously didn't want these cuts released for a reason!) Some might consider them too "formal sounding" to be true "blues", but they are still excellent, enjoyable and instructive. What does this CD lack that later ones have? First, Scott Lafaro is not providing his groundbreaking bass accompaniments and solos
