Product Description:
Gil Evans Video(VHS/DVD). In his early teens, Gil Evans discovered the love of his life—jazz. Later, he would state that it was Louis Armstrong who taught him to love music and "work" a trumpet melody. This program examines Evans’ life and music, particularly his association with jazz greats Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Gerry Mulligan, and John Lewis in the 1940s and 50s. Portions of Evans’ landmark album, Porgy and Bess, which he recorded with Mulligan, are featured and discussed as one of the highlights of his illustrious career. (55 minutes)
