The crown jewel of the epic Evans / Davis triptych that began with 'Miles Ahead' and 'Porgy and Bess', 'Sketches of Spain' is as emotionally compelling as any performance in the trumpeter's remarkable body of works.
Combining as it does the emotional gravity of two cultures - the deep song of flamenco music and the rich lament of the blues - 'Sketches of Spain' is a musical hybrid of enormous power and beauty. It stands alone as one of the pillars of modern music.
