Gil Evans Orchestra Releases New Album

For fans of Gil Evans, Miles Davis & jazz!


Gil Evans played a key role in the development of cool jazz, modal jazz, free jazz, and jazz fusion. Gil’s sons, trumpeter Miles Evans and his brother Noah Evans are keeping the flame alive with “Hidden Treasures”, a trilogy of recordings of which “Monday Nights” is the first. The concept is to feature compositions that the Orchestra played live in the late 70s and early 80s. Miles Evans wrote and arranged “LL Funk” in which Kenwood Dennard (Dizzy Gillespie, Brand X, etc...) drives the music with a powerful funk beat, with Darryl Jones (Rolling Stones, Sting, Herbie Hancock, etc...) on bass.
