CD Reviews

A Neglected Gem
Jared Hoke | Marine on St. Croix, MN | 05/20/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Gary McFarland was an immensely talented musician & composer/arranger who died much too young. This recording happened because he studied with Bill Evans, and when Evans agreed to appear on a recording with him, wrote a "suite" around the particular skills Evans had in such abundance. This album is a sequence of effects: very light, like a Manet painting, that are masterfully done. Evans fans may be disappointed that is isn't more "deep", but that is not its intention. McFarland's talent was wasted a lot of commercial work, but in outings like this, he is absolutely superb. I have the recording on a original commercial RtoR tape, and consider it one of the gems of my collection."
