5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive, 3 Mar 2005
This review is from: Out Of The Cool (Audio CD)
A landmark album which pretty much tells you all you need to know about Gil Evans - plus of course his work with Miles Davis on 'Miles Ahead' etc. Understated, subtle and producing some great solos from the musicians. And it doesn't come much cooler than this. 'Sister Sadie' is a bonus track not on the original 1961 LP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Evans, 21 Sep 2007

This review is from: Out Of The Cool (Audio CD)
I've been buying jazz albums for nearly 40 years and can't believe I only found this recently, after catching the end of a documentary on the man.
The arranements, especially the use of the lower brass, are outstanding. Check out Sunken Treasure. Nearly 50 years ago some of the harmony must have seemed radical. The instrumental playing is also great with Ron Carter on bass thundering away. I've loved the music of Carla Bley for years - now I know where she got some of her inspiration.
