Kenny Burrell & Phil Woods – Previously Unreleased Recordings. Label: Verve Records – V6-8838. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Promo.
Gil Evans Orch, Kenny Burrell & Phil Woods.
Previously Unreleased Recordings is an album by saxophonist Sonny Stitt featuring compositions associated with Duke Ellington which was originally recorded in 1960 and released on the Verve label in 1973. Norman Granz probably didn't want it released during Johnny Hodges's lifetime and even here it is not billed as a Ellington tribute. On CD it can be found on Import as part of Rearin' Back, Tribute To Duke Ellington.

Background information. Although Woods was primarily a saxophonist, he was also a clarinet player and solos can be found scattered through his recordings. One particular example is his clarinet solo on "Misirlou" on the album Into the Woods. Woods, along with Rick Chamberlain and Ed Joubert, founded the organization Celebration of the Arts (COTA) in 1978 late one night in the bar at the Deer Head Inn in Delaware Water Gap. The organization would eventually become the Delaware Water Gap Celebration of the Arts. The Individualism of Gil Evans (1964). Listen to Art Farmer and the Orchestra (Mercury, 1962).
Frankly its hard to find a bad Gil Evans album. Although universally respected he's not widely collected so its often possible to find his albums in the bins for cheap. While it may not be his "best" (although exceptional), one set of albums that have become my reference recordings for live performance are the two volumes of Gil Evans Live At The Public Theater. It was recorded for the Japanese market and I prefer the Japanese pressings on Trio Records.
