Out of the Cool - The Gil Evans Orchestra [Vinyl]

Added to cart! View cart or continue shopping

Originally released in 1961, this album is widely considered to be Evans' masterpiece, on par with Duke Ellington in terms of orchestration, and essential listening for any jazz fan. Evans had spent the previous few years recording with Miles Davis on such acclaimed works as 'Miles Ahead', 'Porgy and Bess' and 'Sketches of Spain', a collaboration which proved to be extremely enriching for both men. This LP was Evans' first post-Miles recording, and the album's title is an obvious nod to that fact (a play on Davis' own 'Birth of the Cool'). The album showcases two significant Evans compositions, the groundbreaking 'La Nevada' and 'Sunken Treasure'.
