I’m really excited to have Gil’s arrangement of “Greensleeves” available first time through ArtistShare® for people to study and perform. This is great example of how Gil could frame an arrangement perfectly around a soloist. This chart was written for the great guitarist Kenny Burrell and recorded on his album, Guitar Forms (Verve). Like all the music available in the Gil Evans Scores Project, this chart was taken from Gil’s original manuscript, and includes a monster “shout chorus” the really takes this chart to another level.
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.
