  1. The Gil Evans Orchestra- Into The Hot (1961) {LP - Impulse}:

  2. Sweet! I've been wait for someone to post this for years. I've always seen this as the companion to "Out of the Cool" and while you see the that album all over the place, you almost never see this one. A pity too because I think this is where things really get interesting.
