Overview

The Gil Evans Monday Night orchestra ripped through the four cuts on this '86 session, often at a torrid pace. Even when they slowed things down, the solos were often done at fever-pitch levels, especially those from alto saxophonist Chris Hunter. Hamiett Bluiett's low-down baritone helped compensate for the absence of Howard Johnson, while John Clark provided an alternative voice on French horn. The songs were all lengthy selections with none less than 12 minutes. Only one song was written by Evans, the exhaustive opus "Waltz." Otherwise, he is conducting, pacing, and steering the orchestra through the winding movement of Hendrix's "Little Wing" or John Clark's "Your Number."
