If it contained nothing else than than the ravishing slow version of Kurt Weill's "Barbara Song", 1964's THE INDIVIDUALISM OF GIL EVANS would still rate as one of the greatest of '60s jazz LPs. It's possible that tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter never surpassed his solo here, which is similar in impact to the young Stan Getz's career-defining turn on Woody Herman's "Summer Sequence Pt. IV". Even though the original "Barbara Song" from THE THREEPENNY OPERA is actually pretty jaunty, this magical arrangment still has a claim as a definitive one. Elsewhere, the undulating "Las Vegas Tango", marked by an exciting solo by guitarist Kenny Burrell during the bridge, is another example of Evans at his best, which wasn't always the case since he tended to reserve his best writing for the collaborations with Miles Davis and others. The CD version offers a whole LP's worth of bonus material from the original sessions, including the swirling "Time Of The Barracudas", Bob Dourough's "Nothing Like You", and an extended treatment of Willie Dixon's "Spoonful".
