Format: Audio CD
These recordings have long been unavailable. The sessions with Cannonball Adderly, originally titled 'New Bottle, Old Wine' are every bit as good as Gil's album with Miles Davis 'Miles Ahead' recorded the previous year & should to be regarded as one of the greatest albums of big band jazz. Like 'Miles Ahead' the individual pieces form a suite, with some amazingly inventive charts & Adderly at his peak (coinciding with his time in Miles' band). The Penguin guide called this "one of [Adderly's] finest hours".

The second album, originally titled 'Great Jazz Standards' is less great, somewhat let down by Gil's 'arrangers piano' playing, but with some good solos from Johnny Coles. Gil's inventiveness in his arrangement of Monk's 'Straight No Chaser' is quite incredible & Coles' playing on the opener 'Davenport Blues' is pretty special.

This BLUE NOTE CD reissue combines two Gil Evans albums recorded originally for WORLD PACIFIC in 1958 & 1959.
Among the personnel for both albums are Johnny Coles(trumpet); Curtis Fuller, Jimmy Cleveland(trombones); Steve Lacy(soprano sax); Cannonball Adderley(alto sax); Budd Johnson(tenor sax, clarinet); Gil Evans(piano); Chuck Wayne, Ray Crawford(guitars); Paul Chambers(bass); Art Blakey, Elvin Jones(drums).
Tracks 1-8('New Bottle, Old Wine') were recorded at Judson Hall, New York city on April 9 & May 2/21/26, 1958.
Tracks 9-15('Great Jazz Standards') were recorded at Webster Hall, New York City in early 1959.
Gil Evans arrangements of these jazz classics are inventive and exhilarating with fine solos and highlights include Jelly Roll Morton's 'King Porter Stomp', Fats Waller's 'Willow Tree', Thelonious Monk's 'Straight No Chaser' & Clifford Brown's 'Joy Spring'.
All in all, this 76-minute CD is an excellent introduction to Gil Evans recordings from the 1950s.

Definitely a ground breaker but hard to place. Cannonball Adderley and it seems only him (correction if I'm wrong) who delivers very professional and brilliant solos on many of the pieces. There is no doubt that the structure and intent of the arrangements here was jazz (and Gil Evans was first and foremost an arranger) and the album has influenced the genres of jazz and film but the overall effect seems at one remove from what I understand as jazz. It is a bit like Stravinsky's Ebony Concerto, a wonderful thing to be sure but somewhat cold? I expect to be shot down :-) Constructive criticism (please) always welcome
