This week on Jazzset With Dee Dee Bridgewater

Terence Blanchard
Celebrating Miles Davis & Gil Evans, at Montery

Gil Evans, the masterful arranger, collaborated with Miles Davis on three indelible projects in the late '50s. This week's JazzSet brings us a re-creation of that music, with a hand-picked orchestra led by Vince Mendoza, and featuring trumpeter Terence Blanchard, playing with emotion and commitment. They bring us music from Evans' Sketches of Spain, and Porgy and Bess. Dee Dee Bridgewater hosts.
