Originally released in 1961, Out of the Cool is widely considered to be Evans's masterpiece, on par with Duke Ellington in terms of orchestration, and essential listening for any jazz fan. Evans had spent the previous few years working with Miles Davis on such acclaimed works as Miles Ahead, Porgy and Bess, and Sketches of Spain (DOG 904LP), a collaboration that proved to be extremely enriching for both artists. This LP was Evans's first post-Miles recording, and the album's title, Out of the Cool, is an obvious nod to that fact.
