Jimi Hendrix was scheduled to record with Gil Evans' Orchestra but died before the session could take place. A few years later, Evans explored ten of Hendrix's compositions with his unique 19-piece unit, an orchestra that included two French horns, the tuba of Howard Johnson, three guitars, two basses, two percussionists and such soloists as altoist David Sanborn, trumpeter Marvin "Hannibal" Peterson, Billy Harper on tenor, and guitarists Ryo Kawasaki and John Abercrombie
Gil Evans will forever be remembered as the arranger for those classic Miles Davis orchestral albums, but Evans led his own orchestra from the '60s until his death in 1988. A true fusion of jazz's free-ranging leanings and Hendrix's psychedelic and blues jams, Plays the Music of Jimi Hendrix is a masterstroke for Evans, who was actually supposed to do an album with Hendrix himself.
Not so, in fact, the connection is a lot stronger than you might think because Hendrix was due to record with Evans’ Orchestra but died before the session could take place. Here is the second best choice, with Evans’ 19-piece orchestra going all-out.
We knew Gil was crazy about Jimi's music through Miles-Miles kept telling Jimi that Gil would love to talk to hi. And so they did. Rehearsals with Evans' orchestra were scheduled to take place at the end of September, after Hendrix's return from his European tour, followed by a performance at Carnegie Hall, then an album consisting of Evans' arrangements of Hendrix compositions, with Hendrix himself as the principle soloist.
