“Punjab” was written in 1964, originally intended for the Individualism of Gil Evans album. Gil and the band had rehearsed it in the studio, but Gil wasn’t happy with the performance, so it wasn’t included on the album. After some time spent studying the piece, trying to come up with a way to make this piece blossom, we recorded on our album in celebration of Gil’s 100th birthday in 2012 called, CENTENNIAL: Newly Discovered Works of Gil Evans on ArtistShare®.
In addition to the study score, you will also receive a PDF download of a scanned page from Gil's original manuscript. You will also have access to a supplemental video in which I explain the unique history behind my discovery of this "lost" work and a streaming audio show in which I analyze the chart, discussing Gil's use of harmony, orchestration, and more.
I've worked on bringing this music back to life for a very long time, and it I am confident I can provide you with new insights into these previously forgotten masterpieces. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity get your hands on this priceless study score from one of the greatest, most dynamic composer/arrangers in jazz history.
