'The Gil Evans Project'
The bandleader earned massive props from fans, critics and Grammy voters when his first edition of Evans tunes dropped a couple years ago. God is in the details - the performances were made even more eloquent by original manuscripts of the iconic composer-arranger’s work that Truesdell found while investing all things Evans. Now he and his large ensemble are recording a second album live this week, and it too will feature some newly-found pieces. Precision and dynamics are their calling card, but Gil’s big heart will be front and center in these performances.
