1947 Transcription Performances

These big-band sessions start to hint at bebop from the opener, "Robbins' Nest," but concentrate on American popular standards. You hear young arranger Gil Evans, Lee Konitz on alto sax/clarinet, and trumpeter Red Rodney, who would go on to define the bop stance. There's one Edvard Grieg composition, a lone Thornhill classic original ("Snowfall"), and work by the mysterious Danny Polo on clarinet.
