Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Jones conducted the 50-piece ensemble at this concert, which combined the Gil Evans Orchestra with the George Gruntz Concert Jazz Band, so an expansive woodwind section balanced the horns. Davis brought his alto saxophonist, Kenny Garrett, to share solo space along with himself and trumpeter Wallace Roney. The results - which included selections from 1957's Miles Ahead, 1958's Porgy And Bess and 1960's Sketches Of Spain, among others - were often magical.
