AAA 100% Analogue Mastered by Kevin Gray at AcousTech Mastering   

Limited Edition -  Pressed at RTI - Impulse A-4

Their 45rpm stereo pressing sounds at least as good - in the highs and lows, better - than the original, and that's saying a lot." - Fred Kaplan - Stereophile 

One way or another a copy of this masterpiece belongs in every good record collection (unless you don't like jazz) and given the reality of the day, fifty plus years after it was originally released and five years after the fire, the best available version is Analogue Productions'. If you buy the DOXY version, which costs about half of what the AP costs, you'll be getting way less than half of the music. (The sound rating is for the Analogue Productions reissue of course).” — Music = 11/11; Sound = 9/11 — Michael Fremer,

"...From the opening maracas and subsequent introduction of each instrument on 'La Nevada,' it's clear that this is a very, very special recording. At its best, the musicians are spread out and solidly anchored in place in the listening room. The soundstage is positively huge and instrumental tonality is exceptional." - Myles B. Astor, Positive Feedback Online

A groundbreaking jazz recording by the longtime Miles Davis collaborator Gil Evans highlights the latter's supreme and influential skills as a jazz orchestrator. This album is a brilliant example of Evans' ability to make a large orchestra sound like a smaller jazz combo using orchestrations that infuse the larger unit with the immediacy and spontaneity of the smaller.

Out Of The Cool features some of Evan's finest compositions, including the famous "La Nevada" as well as a magnificent performance of George Russell's "Sratosphunk." Soloists include Budd Johnson (tenor), Johnny Coles (trumpet), Ray Crawford (guitar), Elvin Jones (drums), Ron Carter (bass) and Jimmy Knepper (trombone).

The ensemble is superbly recorded by the legendary Rudy Van Gelder.
