Gil Evans are most unusual with excellent use of bass brass. Cool it is -- highly recommended.
Although unusual, will not offend the classical jazz listener. It is not free jazz for example and
is not ever dissonant.
Gripe. The companion album 'Into the Hot' is available only in an outrageously overpriced edition.
But this music comes across to me as something that might have been created in the 70s or 80s. Gil Evans was way ahead of his time.
To enjoy this music you do need to have some affinity for big band jazz. However, Gil Evans' approach toward big band is very colorful, has lots of dynamic range, and tremendous solo performances, so don't be concerned that it is going to be just a bunch of loud choruses from the brass section.
This disc is a rare and treasurable example of Evans out from the shadow of the great Miles Davis, and fronting his own band, featuring his own brilliant piano and some terrific guitar from Ray Crawford. It belongs in anybody's jazz collection.
Did you know that Lester Young's favorite singer, apart from Billie Holliday, was - Frank Sinatra?
Now that this era is over, and all the lead players have moved on, this moves into classic status.
Some people call them tone poems; others "symphonic jazz"; it hardly matters what label one applies, it's beautiful and timeless.
