Gil Evans
New Bottle Old Wine

The cast list for Gil Evans’ 1958 LP New Bottle Old Wine reads like a ‘who’s who’ of first-wave jazz greats. Cannonball Adderley is the main soloist, and in support of him we find people such as Art Blakey and Johnny Coles. Then there’s Evans himself, one of the finest arrangers of his age, turning out orchestral reinterpretations of Thelonious Monk, Jelly Roll Morton and the like. We needn’t tell you that New Bottle Old Wine is a fabulous record - and we also needn’t tell you that this new Blue Note edition, mastered from the original tapes, is as fine a way to hear it as any.
