Miles Davis and Gil Evans
In searching for his new sound, Miles Davis partnered up with Gil Evans, the master of mood arrangement who put the renowned trumpeter miles, miles and Miles Ahead of the jazz scene in the late 1950s. Porgy and Bess and Sketches of Spain also marked the redefining sound of Davis and Evans. Davis’s trumpet solos lead the ensemble, instead of just riding the wave. With the support of Evan’s colorful, mournful and lustful orchestration, Davis’s soul-baring melodic lines take listeners into the epics of fantasies that are filled with exotic tones, colors and textures.
