Sunday at the Village Vanguard is a live album by jazz pianist and composer Bill Evans and his Trio consisting of Evans, bassist Scott LaFaro, and drummer Paul Motian.

June 25th of 1961 was a huge day in the life of Bill Evans and arguably jazz music as a whole. Evans and his majestic trio spent the whole day playing at the legendary Village Vanguard club in New York and the result was not one, but two live albums worth of material with Sunday at the Village Vanguard being the first and Waltz for Debby being the second. Sunday is the more upbeat of the two and it has a slightly greater focus on bassist Scot LaFaro and drummer Paul Motian.

Evans solidifies his status as being one of the most lyrical and elegant of jazz pianists and like on Waltz for Debby, creates tracks of incredible beauty and laid back verve and his rhythm section is as great as he is with LaFaro's bouncy bass lines and Motian's enthusiastic, but reserved drum work. The Village Vanguard sessions are truly some of the greatest live jazz ever recorded.
