The second volume recorded at Sweet Basil's by Gil Evans' Monday Night Orchestra puts more emphasis on his originals, with rollicking versions of "Jelly Roll" and "Snowflake Bop." The Hendrix outing this time is "Stone Free," and it is almost as relentless in its pace, solos, and arrangement as the previous disc's "Voodoo Chile."

Overview

The second volume recorded at Sweet Basil's by Gil Evans' Monday Night Orchestra puts more emphasis on his originals, with rollicking versions of "Jelly Roll" and "Snowflake Bop." The Hendrix outing this time is "Stone Free," and it is almost as relentless in its pace, solos, and arrangement as the previous disc's "Voodoo Chile." Howard Johnson again provides fabulous contributions on the bottom with rumbling tuba, mellow baritone sax, and effective bass clarinet. Trumpeter Marvin Peterson, tenor saxophonist George Adams, and Chris Hunter on alto sax are the top soloists. Evans concludes the discs with a poignant version of Charles Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat," capturing the leader's intent to commemorate while also putting an '80s spin on the arrangement.
