Sketches of Spain / The Individualism of Gil Evans: the cool Orchestral arrangements of Gil Evans changed the landscape of jazz in the late 1950s, especially with the massive success of the Miles Davis/Gil Evans collaboration, Sketches Of Spain. Interpretations of Rodrigo’s Guitar Concerto and Spanish folk tunes created beautiful, haunting settings for Miles’ plaintive trumpet. Evan’s unmistakable style and sound is brilliantly expressed on his own 'Individualism' – one of the most distinctive jazz recordings of all time. A fitting tribute on Evans’ centenary.
