New Gil Evans Project.

Just wondering if anyone's aware of a project in the U S involving the music of Gil Evans? A guy called Ryan Truesdell has been given access to all of Gil's manuscripts & charts by Anita & Miles(Gil's wife & son). There is a huge amount of previously unheard & unrecorded music of Gil's which has been gathering dust since his death. The idea is that the best of all the material is to be recorded (starting in 6 weeks time) and a CD will be released on May 13th 2012 which would be Gil's 100th birthday ! Apparently there's material from different phases of Gil's career - ie The Thornhill Years, New Bottles Old Wine era, The Monday Night at Sweet Basil Orch etc. Anyone interested in following this up can find everything here.
