The Gil Evans Project's live album, Lines of Color, is now available for download from the ArtistShare site and available for pre-order on iTunes. The band was nominated for three Grammy awards in 2013, and their first album, Centennial, won Gil a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Arrangement. The ensemble also won two JJA Jazz Awards, record of the year and Large Ensemble of the Year.

This new live recording took place May 13-18th, 2014, for the Gil Evans Project’s fourth–annual, weeklong engagement at the Jazz Standard in New York City. During these sets, Ryan Truesdell and the Gil Evans Project performed a wide range of Gil’s music, from the arrangements he did for the Claude Thornhill Orchestra in the 1940’s, to the music written for numerous recording sessions throughout the late-60’s. They even performed many recently discovered works, previously un-recorded and heard for the first time during this historic concert.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
