Arranger: Gil Evans.
In the early 1960s, two giants of jazz went into the studios to collaborate on some of the most haunting, beautiful music ever. Miles was, by this time, a jazz star, a great trumpet player, composer and bandleader (his bands would be "finishing schools" for future titans: John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Dave Holland). Gil Evans was a subtly superb composer and arranger, who wrote for the big band of Claude Thornhill and singers Johnny Mathis and Helen Merrill, as well as the small groups of Gerry Mulligan and Teddy Charles, and would go on to leading his own edgy, modern big band (he even recorded an album of Jimi Hendrix songs!).
This six-CD set, comprises, alternate takes & all, the Davis/Evans albums MILES AHEAD, PORGY AND BESS, SKETCHES OF SPAIN, QUIET NIGHTS, and PLUS 19. This is some of Miles' most gorgeous playing in intricate, thoughtful, lush and majestic orchestral settings, with more that a few subtle classical shadings. Save your pennies and dimes for this elaborately annotated (it has CD-sized "miniatures" of original album covers!) box, a treasure for fans of Miles, Evans, orchestral jazz and heartfelt instrumental music.

Previews

Rolling Stone (12/26/96, pp.195-196) - "...a vital reconstruction of one of the most important artistic relationships in American popular music, let alone jazz....The elegant lyricism and gently emphatic force of Evans' orchestral voicings...inspired some of the trumpeter's most acute and dynamic improvisations..."
Q (12/96, p.152) - 5 Stars (out of 5) - "...makes even buffs jump up and cheer....some of the most memorable sessions ever recorded in jazz, with the bonus that...you get the wonderful, laconic insider-talk of musicians at work as well. Indispensable."
Down Beat (11/96, p.62) - 5 Stars (out of 5) - "There are controversies, there are opinions, there...is room for measured disagreement and criticism. But let us begin by acknowledging the sheer and unequivocal sublimity of this music. If the sounds do not make you melt, consult your physician. You may need open-heart surgery..."
Vibe (12/96, p.166) - "...What made Davis and Evans ideal collaborators has everything to do with shared sensibilities and a mutual objective: forcing intimacy and humility upon two of the most overblown devices in music--the trumpet and the orchestra..."
Musician (12/96, p.88) - "...lovingly re-mastered and annotated, and contains a wealth of alternate takes and rehearsal sketches....a radical recasting of the modern big band....Most fascinating is how the annotators have resurrected the long out-of-print QUIET NIGHTS..."
Record Collector (magazine) (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] magnificent cornucopia of jazz treasures..."
