INCLUDES 5 BONUS TRACKS

Presented here is the complete original Miles Davis-Gil Evans album Sketches of Spain (Columbia CS8271), an authentic milestone of jazz history. The LP marked the third collaboration between Davis and Evans (following Miles Ahead and Porgy and Bess). As a bonus to this masterpiece, the “Song of Our Country”, a track that completes the sessions, as well as two tunes previously recorded by Miles that also share the Spanish feeling and which, in a sense, foreshadow the making of Sketches of Spain. Also added are two tracks from Miles & Gil Evans’ 1961 Carnegie Hall concert: “Spring Is Here”, which they didn’t include on any of their studio albums, and the live version of “Concierto de Aranjuez”.
