This album was a move towards greater freedom in Evans’ compositions and arrangements, but at the same time there are echoes of his recent work with Miles. It includes two great Evans compositions in ‘La Nevada’ and ‘Sunken Treasure.’ There’s the lovely standard, ‘Where Flamingos Fly’, George Russell’s ‘Stratusphunk and Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht’s, ‘Bilbao Song’.

The Penguin Guide to Jazz calls Out of the Cool, “Evans’ masterpiece under his own name and one of the best examples of jazz orchestration since the early Ellington bands.
