Bill Evans / George Russell

To you from the world of jazz, and given that the Jazz Festival is in full swing here, how appropriate is that. I wish I could remember the name of the RCA anthology that I got this from.

Russell was the composer / arranger; Evans was the star musician.

Bill Evans / George Russell:

Concerto For Billy The Kid – Recorded in October, 1956. Features Evans on piano, Art Farmer on trumpet, Hal McKusick on alto sax, Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, Paul Mortian on drums. Few of those names mean anything to me. I don’t know what this has to do with Billy The Kid, and it’s not any kind of concerto.
