NPR Music asks, What if there were lost big-band masterpieces by the great composer/arranger Gil Evans which never made it to record? In fact, there are plenty of them, and composer/arranger Ryan Truesdell has culled, researched and transcribed a handful of the best material for the CD Centennial: Newly Discovered Works of Gil Evans. Truesdell leads an orchestra in a live version at Newport.
