  • Fullscreen. Features the music Miles created with arranger Gil Evans and conductor Quincy Jones, along with the Gil Evans Orchestra and the George Gruntz Concert Jazz Band. Includes Miles Ahead, Summertime, selections from Sketches of Spain and 10 other tunes. Also includes trumpeter/fluegelhornist Wallace Roney and alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett.
