The Gil Evans Orchestra (PRESS: www.jazzjournal.co.uk)



"Hidden Treasures: Monday Nights" is the first studio recording of the Gil Evans Orchestra in over 40 years. It has been well worth the wait. As one of the most revered orchestrators and arrangers in jazz history, Evans played a seminal role in the development of cool jazz, modal jazz, free jazz and fusion. All of his these influences are strikingly present on this CD, which presents a contemporary incarnation of Evans’ distinctive music.
