Gil Evans 1984

Gil-Evans-resize-1In 1984, Gil Evans came to Toronto…

We rehearsed each day for five days, with an audience in attendance on the first and final rehearsals, and then performed on the next. That gig had been resigned to memory only until I saw these pics posted by the great jazz reviewer, historian and photographer Mark Miller. Mark issues the disclaimer that the picture quality is for historical purposes only, but I’m happy to have ‘em!

As a sidenote, Gil came back to Toronto the following year to record an album with Glen Hall called Mother of the Book. I was happy to play on that as well.
