Ryan Truesdell's Gil Evans Centennial Project at the Newport Jazz Festival

Date: 
Friday, February 1, 2013 - 6:00pm

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.

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
