The Gil Evans Orchestra: Hidden Treasures Vol. 1, Monday Nights

Read "Hidden Treasures Vol. 1, Monday Nights" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


In the '70s composer and arranger Gil Evans, after years of outstanding studio arranging for Miles Davis and others, put together a performing orchestra which took influences from the jazz-rock and fusion concepts of the time. That orchestra released several fine albums such as Svengali (Atlantic, 1973) and There Comes A Time (RCA, 1975) and, on ...

The Gil Evans Orchestra: Hidden Treasures - Monday Night Sessions, vol 1

Read "Hidden Treasures - Monday Night Sessions, vol 1" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Even though the name Gil Evans has a hallowed ring these days, the late composer / arranger's music remains for many aficionados an acquired taste. On the other hand, while that is the Gil Evans Orchestra performing on Hidden Treasures, Volume 1, the lion's share of the music brought to light isn't his--Evans wrote only two ...

Gil Evans Orchestra: Hidden Treasures - Monday Night Sessions, vol 1

Read "Hidden Treasures - Monday Night Sessions, vol 1" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


A tre decenni dalla morte del suo leader, esce il 7 dicembre il nuovo disco della Gil Evans Orchestra finalmente registrato in studio. Com'è noto, sia gli ultimi album della band con l'arrangiatore ancora in vita, sia il postumo Tribute To Gil (Soul Note 1989), con la formazione orfana, erano registrazioni live, spesso acusticamente carenti. Per ...

Howard Johnson and Gravity: Testimony

Read "Testimony" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Il Gravity di Howard Johnson è un organico dedito esclusivamente alla timbrica grave (basso tuba, principalmente) con solisti e sezione ritmica. Il progetto risale addirittura al 1968 ma registrò il suo primo disco solo nel 1996 perchè tutte le etichette lo rifiutavano. Alla fine Johnson convinse i dirigenti della Verve, che non se ne pentirono viste ...

Truth, Liberty & Soul: Live in NYC The Complete 1982 Jazz Alive! Recording

Read "Truth, Liberty & Soul: Live in NYC The Complete 1982 Jazz Alive! Recording" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


Il 1982 doveva essere un anno speciale per Jaco Pastorius. Dopo essere stato riconosciuto come il più grande bassista del mondo (così come amava presentarsi a tutti quando era ancora un perfetto sconosciuto) nel corso dei suoi cinque anni di militanza appena conclusa con i Weather Report, era tempo di dimostrare che era molto più che ...

Howard Johnson and Gravity: Testimony

Read "Testimony" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Those who see the tuba as a sluggish, unwieldy instrument capable only of rounding out a musical composition in the lower register may have to rethink that appraisal after listening to Testimony, in which multi-instrumentalist and tuba master Howard Johnson ushers no less than half a dozen tubas and rhythm through their paces in a session ...

Miles Evans: Two-Part Harmony

Read "Miles Evans: Two-Part Harmony" reviewed by Melanie Futorian


Trumpeter Miles Evans, like saxophonist Ravi Coltrane, has faced the plus/minus of being the son of a jazz icon--in this case, legendary composer/arranger/bandleader Gil Evans. But if Ravi's exposure to his father was cut short by the saxophonist's too-early demise in 1967, just shy of the youngster's second birthday, Miles had the opportunity to grow up ...
