Gil Evans “Out of the Cool”

http://www.chicagoreviewpress.com/catalog/showBook.cfm?ISBN=1556524935#


His Life and Music

By: Stephanie Stein Crease

Winner of the ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award.

The life (1912–1988) and career of Gil Evans paralleled and often foreshadowed the quickly changing world of jazz through the 20th century. Gil Evans: Out of the Cool is the comprehensive biography of a self-taught musician whom colleagues often regarded as a mentor. His innovative work as a composer, arranger, and bandleader—for Miles Davis, with whom he frequently collaborated over the course of four decades, and for his own ensembles—places him alongside Duke Ellington and Aaron Copland as one of the giants of American music.

  Gil Evans Bio

Gil Evans wrote and arranged some of 
the best albums for Miles Davis:
"Miles Ahead", "Porgy and Bess",
"Sketches of Spain".
He influenced some of the greatest
musical minds in many genres of
music!

Gil was underpaid and often over
looked because he was totally
immersed in the music! His love and
passion for music was all consuming.
