Throughout his career, Evans's writing enhanced the artistry of other musicians, coaxing them into going "beyond notation," as one colleague put it. From the late 1960s on, the music he created with his experimental big band attracted pop superstars as well, notably the guitarist Jimi Hendrix. Evans's work remained compelling and uncompromising until his death." "Written with the cooperation of Evans's friends, colleagues, and family, and based on scores of interviews and newly found documentation, Gil Evans: Out of the Cool is the definitive account of one of America's greatest musical figures."--BOOK JACKET.
"A beautifully constructed biography." -- Variety
