JAZZ | Eastman New Jazz Ensemble: The Music of Gil Evans 

When the repertoire is selected for student jazz ensembles there are plenty of excellent arrangements to choose from. But only the best bands can tackle the works of perhaps the greatest jazz arranger of all, Gil Evans. His collaborations with Miles Davis included masterpieces like "Miles Ahead," "Porgy and Bess" and "Sketches of Spain." You can bet there will be selections from this oeuvre and some lesser-known works when Dave Rivello leads the Eastman New Jazz Ensemble in The Music of Gil Evans.

The Eastman New Jazz Ensemble performs The Music of Gil Evans on Monday, December 14, at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. Free. 274-1100;
