Great Jazz Standards (Blue Note Tone Poet Series) LP
The brilliant arranger Gil Evans had already collaborated with Miles Davis on Birth of the Cool and Miles Ahead when he made his 2 excellent albums for World Pacific—New Bottle Old Wine (1958) and Great Jazz Standards (1959)—the latter featuring Johnny Coles, Steve Lacy, Budd Johnson, Elvin Jones & more. This stereo Tone Poet Vinyl Edition was produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes, pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI, and packaged in a deluxe tip-on jacket.
