9780304704880: Arranging the Score: Portraits of the Great Arrangers

Thirteen original essays from one of the world's greatest jazz writers draw together observations on the craft of the arranger. Ranging from big bands to studio backings for singers, Lees brings his characteristic blend of personal and inside knowledge, keen reportage and trenchant criticism to bear on major figures in music arrangement. His portrait of Miles Davis's arranger Gil Evans is one of the few essays written on this significant composer.
