20th Anniversary Special for the Gil Evans Centennial | Miles Davis/Gil Evans: Still Ahead at the 2011 Monterey Jazz Festival

Genre: 
Date: 
Friday, May 18, 2012 - 6:00pm

Miles Davis and Gil Evans, trumpet and orchestrator, collaborated unforgettably on the albums Porgy and Bess and Sketches of Spain. For this occasion, Miles Evans (the son of Gil) provides the original charts for both. Terence Blanchard is the trumpet soloist, with the Vince Mendoza Orchestra from Los Angeles.
"...[T]he entire performance [of Sketches of Spain] was impeccable," blogged Richard Scheinen of the San Jose Mercury News immediately after the show. "You could hear, with clarity, the astonishing detail of Evans's writing."
