TAKE NOTE: This is NOT the version Gil did for Miles Davis on Miles Ahead! This is a previously unrecorded version that he did seven years BEFORE the version he did for Miles, done for the Claude Thornhill Orchestra. The Thornhill Orchestra never got around to recording it, but thankfully we were able to record this great, historical arrangement on our album, CENTENNIAL: Newly Discovered Works of Gil Evans on ArtistShare® for the first time. It’s really fascinating to be able to hear and perform this work, and see where the arrangement that we know for Miles got its start.
In addition to the study score, you will also receive a PDF download of a scanned page from Gil's original manuscript. You will also have access to a supplemental video in which I explain the unique history behind my discovery of this "lost" work and a streaming audio show in which I analyze the chart, discussing Gil's use of harmony, orchestration, and more.
I've worked on bringing this music back to life for a very long time, and it I am confident I can provide you with new insights into these previously forgotten masterpieces. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity get your hands on this priceless study score from one of the greatest, most dynamic composer/arrangers in jazz history.
