Gil Evans: Gil Evans & Ten        (4 of 4 found this review helpful)
  July 9, 2007

This is a must have. For the first time it was possible to replicate the many edits made for the master tape of the original mono release, thanks to modern digital editing technology (it must have been as painstaking as for the Miles Davis / Gil Evans albums for Columbia).

This and the other three Hitzlberger CDs of Liszt piano music I have are evidence that he is among the great Liszt interpreters of our time. What makes this disc special is a) the high resolution recording and b) ... more
