Turn Out the Stars is a live album by jazz pianist Bill Evans with Marc Johnson and Joe LaBarbera recorded at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London in 1980 and released on the Dreyfus Jazz label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars and states "the innovative and highly influential pianist is in fine form, emphasizing more introspective material... Although it does not reach the emotional heights of his slightly earlier Dreyfus set Letter to Evan and the Warner Bros. box, this music should be of great interest to Bill Evans collectors".[2]
