This review is from: Miles Davis & Quincy Jones Live At Montreux (Audio CD)
The Gil Evans and Miles Davis collaboration of the 50's, produced some of the very best of jazz. Gil's orchestral arrangements gave Miles exactly the right sound for his genius improvisation. As it says on the sleeve notes it took Quincy Jones to persuade Miles to revive those sounds at the Montreux jazz festival, with the Gil Evans Orchestra. The result is magical not only because it is a live performance but because it takes us back to the time when these songs were written and were the new sound. I was born in the 50's and I grew up listening to all the jazz greats but rarely has there been such a collaboration as on this album, this is simply great musical history being recreated.
