Ryan Truesdell’s Gil Evans Project  @ the Jazz Standard 13 – 18  

The bandleader earned massive props from fans, critics and Grammy voters when his first edition of Evans tunes dropped a couple years ago. God is in the details – the performances were made even more eloquent by original manuscripts of the iconic composer-arranger’s work that Truesdell found while investing all things Evans. Now he and his large ensemble are recording a second album live this week, and it too will feature some newly-found pieces. Precision and dynamics are their calling card, but Gil’s big heart will be front and center in these performances.

7:30 pm & 9:30 pm $30. Jazz Standard. 116 East 27 Street. 212-576-2232. MACNIE
