Mille grazie, Riccardo !!! What a gift !

For all GE addicts, please look at this page :


The project's aim is to release a CD of never played scores of Gil Evans. Ryan Truesdell, who leads the project (and conducts the band, already performing in the USA), is a composer, arranger & producer for Maria Schneider, Ingrid Jensen, Bob Brookmeyer a.o. He works by now with the GE family to achieve this project for the 100th anniversary of Gil's birthday, next year.

Contributions to this project are highly welcome !

thanks, I'm looking forward to this; haven't got much Gil Evans and it's a nice addition to the Lacy stuff.
