Special Guests TBA

The Gil Evans Orchestra celebrates and honors the legendary jazz arranger and composer's birthday.

The fabulous Gil Evans Orchestra, led by Miles Evans, Gil's son, includes several musicians who were long-term members of Gil's groups.

A seminal figure in the development of modal and cool jazz, as well as jazz fusion, Evans collaborated extensively with Miles Davis, notably on the trumpeter's albums Birth of the Cool (1957), Miles Ahead (1957), Porgy and Bess (1958), and Sketches of Spain (1960). Over the course of his storied career, he also worked with the Claude Thornhill Orchestra, Astrud Gilberto, Jaco Pastorius, Maria Schneider, and a host of other legendary musicians.
