Five FIERY Stars! This single track recording of “The Theme” (aka “La Nevada”) is by legendary composer, arranger, pianist, and orchestra leader Gil Evans, who is famous for both his own work and for his acclaimed work with trumpet icon Miles Davis on classic pieces such as “Sketches of Spain”, "Porgy and Bess", and “Miles Ahead”. This blazing performance is an early version of this original Evans song from his days on the World Pacific Jazz record label and later in an extended 15 minute version on Evan’s "Out Of The Cool” recording. Herein, the urgent Evans theme statement by the orchestra and his percussive piano “comping' is matched and exceeded by the swinging thematic improvisation of tenor sax star Budd Johnson who skillfully breaks the theme into clever statements and reassembles them. This performance can be found both on this recording and on the two hard to find albums:  “World Pacific Swingin' like Sixty” WP-1289 sampler and the World Pacific “Gil Evans Orchestra” LP WP-1270. Five EXCELLENT Stars. (1-track, Time-3:00)
