Gil's new jazz


Gil Evans documentary (1997).

Canadian pianist and arranger Gil Evans collaborated extensively with Miles Davis beginning in the late '40s.

He worked as staff arranger for the Claude Thornhill Orchestra beginning in 1941.

Gil's small New York apartment, located in a basement behind a Chinese laundry, became a meeting place for musicians interested in developing new non-bebop styles.

In 1957 he produced the first record released under his own name.

Gil Evans played an important role in the development of free jazz and jazz fusion.
