Sealed 1988 Original. Saw Cut. Recorded In Paris During November, 1987. Evans And Cugny Arrange And Conduct Big Band Lumiere. “This Is A Very Interesting Recording. Aging Arranger/Pianist Gil Evans Agreed After Much Persuasion To Come To Paris And Play His Music At A Few Concerts With Laurent Cugny's Orchestra. After Only One Rehearsal, The First Event Took Place, And It Gratified Evans To Realize That The Young French Musicians Were Not Only Excellent Players But Big Gil Evans Fans. Their Interpretations Of Thelonious Monk's "Rhythm-A-Ning," "London" And "La Nevada" Rank With The Best Versions Of Evans's Regular Monday Night Band, And Cugny's "Charlie Mingus' Sound Of Love" (An Answer To Mingus' "Duke Ellington's Sound Of Love") Is Also Excellent. Few Of The Sidemen, Other Than Tenor-Saxophonist Andy Sheppard And Percussionist Marilyn Mazur, Are Known In The U.S., But They Did An Excellent Job Of Bringing Gil Evans's Music To Life.” – Scott Yanow, AMG
