About this project

Welcome to the Gil Evans Centennial Project: Newly-discovered works of Gil Evans, where it is our pleasure to share the unfolding of this historical event through ArtistShare. As a participant in the project, you will have a unique look into the entire creative process behind the recording of newly-discovered works of Gil Evans in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of his birth.

Along the way we will be sharing video, audio shows, downloads, photos, and news keeping you updated on the status and progress of this once in a lifetime event, made possible by you. By participating in this project you are playing an integral role in the creation of a new, historical recording of previously un-recorded Gil Evans music!
