Sketches of Spain, recorded in 1959, was arguably the most successful and acclaimed collaboration between Gil Evans and Miles Davis. Featuring legendary songs such as Solea, Will o’ the Wisp, and Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo’s The Concierto de Aranjuez, this record is transcendent both as a timeless piece of music and as a record that “non-jazz-lovers” often have in their collections, as its power to evoke a particular Spanish-tinged mood of reflection is unrivaled. Sketches of Spain is a masterpiece by all measures!!
On Friday, June 3, 2022, in celebration of Miles Davis’ 96th Birthday, Creative Producer Kentyah and the Gil Evans Estate will present a special once-in-a-lifetime performance of this monumental work, featuring jazz and classical music legends such as:
- Hubert Laws, flute
- Ronnie Laws, saxophone and flute
- Alphonso Johnson, bass
- Josef Leimberg, trumpet
Musical Director and Conductor Todd Simon will oversee a 16 piece jazz orchestra and will be working from Gil Evans’ original scores, as generously provided by the Gil Evans Estate.
