last 50 years. Throughout his long and distinguished career he toured and recorded with many of the greats, including Billie Holiday, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Jim Hall, Tony Bennett and many others.
It is his short stint with the Miles Davis Sextet during 1958/59 for which Evans is probably best known, collaborating on the seminal album Kind of Blue, and
in the process influencing Miles's sound with his introspective and scholarly
approach to improvisation.
These sessions, recorded live for the highly acclaimed Dutch Radio show
'Tros Sesjun' between 1973 and 1979, showcase Evans's talent in the small group setting, appearing with such eminent musicians as bass player Eddie Gomez and harmonica virtuoso Toots Thielemans.
