5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound and the packaging is not that bad 3 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD
This masterpiece came to my knowledge from the Magazine BBC Jazz Legends and after I verified the orchestra arrangements in Miles Davis' SKETHCHES OF SPAIN. Gill Evans gives a great performance on piano and conducting the orchestra. The opening piece, LA NEVADA is his composition and it is remarkable, really cool and it lasts more than fifteen minutes. The rest of the album keeps the mood and shows musicanship, good taste and elegance. The orchestra and the arrangement keep the jazz flavour and add colors throughout the whole set. The personel includes Elvin Jones on percussion, who is well known by his work with John Coltrane. The orchestra has everything well set and in the right place. I also highlight the wonderful winds, especially in the track STRATUSPHUNK. The whole set is brilliant and it is clear why Davis worked with Evans in SKETCHES. The albums is considered the best of Evans in his early period (it was originally issued in 1961).
The packaging... Well, the names of the whole band are there and the original sleevenotes. I do admit this work should have and edition with proper care and bonus tracks and that is missing. However for the price it is quite aceptable and enjoyable. The most important thing is the sound and it sounds pretty well. For specialists and fans it is advisable to look for a special edition. For those of us who are buying the album for the very first time I find the material is properly given.
Five stars, no doubt. This is clearly a classic. The critics who led us to this album were right indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Work Of A Music Genius 26 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
Like the previous reviewer, I love this music Which is a timeless classic and would not add to his comments on it but find the packaging somewhat disappointing. I agree with his critisism of the sleeve notes and recording information (or rather lack of!) which is unusual for Impulse.We jazz enthusiasts just have this information, if only to argue with each other about! Anyway, I prefer the old fashioned jewel case and booklet insert to cardboard packaging.
Unlike the previous reviewer, however, I think it is a bit harsh to deduct three stars because of this. Hence my four star review which would have been five for the music alone. Pity about the very short playing time of 37 minutes though.

I could never mark a CD down on packaging grounds personally, but may mention this in the review. I personally prefer the Impulse CD packaging to the oh so awkward jewel case.

Anyway this album is just superb - and shows off Gil Evans great skills as a consummate musician/arranger/conductor, and happily sits in my collection along with the 3 more widely known Miles Davis collaborations (Sketches of Spain/Miles Ahead/Porgy and Bess). From the opening piano on Nevada, with such a glorious intro, through a further 5 pieces covering a wide emotional and dynamic range, it allows a degree of introspection whilst providing novelty and stimulation in equal measure. I would not want to isolate any particular piece but celebrate the unity of the album, covering Gil's work in it's entirety.

So, a very high recommendation - representing jazz orchestra rather than big band as such, if such a difference can be made. Exceptional!
