The Gil Evans Project

Ryan Truesdell's disc of previously unrecorded Gil Evans arrangements floored most of those who heard it and was recently named "Record of the Year" by the Jazz Journalists Association. A scholar whose approach to music has lots of heart, the young conductor breathes new life into classic Gil works this week, from the bouncy Claude Thornhill charts to the airy designs that made Sketches Of Spain timeless. If repertory aims to capture an emotional essence while revealing the rigor of the original art, Truesdell's victories are major. Go every night.
