Gil Evans & Arnold Schoenberg In The House

Two good vinyl finds yesterday. The Schoenberg was only a quid. Mind you that's more than most people would pay for him. I don't blame them. It's a right racket. No tunes. The painting is by Gaetano Citeroni. No, I'd never heard of him either. The record was pressed in 1962. 

The Gil Evans is from 1959. Have I mentioned Cool recently? Gil made an album called out Of The Cool the following year. He never got out of being cool. On this he's arranged Django which, as created by the Modern Jazz Quartet, is the coolest track ever recorded. Gil does it justice.
