Ian Ernest Gilmore "Gil" Evans (1912 - 1988) was a jazz pianist, arranger, composer and bandleader, active in the United States. He played an important role in the development of cool jazz, modal jazz, free jazz and jazz fusion, and collaborated extensively with Miles Davis.
On this new compilation by Not Now Music we have 2 albums originally released on the Impulse Records label. Peter Gamble provides the informative liner notes. Sound quality excellent.

The Penguin Guide to Jazz selected this album as part of its suggested "Core Collection" calling it "Evans' masterpiece under his own name and one of the best examples of jazz orchestration since the early Ellington bands".

Into the Hot is an album released under the auspices of the Gil Evans Orchestra but actually featuring sessions by John Carisi's Orchestra and the Cecil Taylor Unit. The album was released on the Impulse! label in 1961 and features three performances by Taylor with Archie Shepp, Jimmy Lyons, Henry Grimes and Sunny Murray with Ted Curson and Roswell Rudd added on one track. The other three tracks feature Carisi leading an orchestra featuring members of Gil Evans' big band.
