The album, recorded in 1958 and originally released via World Pacific, by Gil Evans - one of the most innovative arrangers in jazz. Evans' orchestra on this session is packed with a superb set of players, including Cannonball Adderley Art Blakey, Paul Chambers and Johnny Coles. Sourced from a previously unknown analog stereo master, the incredible session comes in the highest fidelity on this Tone Poet LP.
In honor of Blue Note Records’ 80th Anniversary, the legendary Jazz label presents the Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series.
