Gil Evans began recording his own albums during 1958-59 thanks to the success of his first collaboration with Miles Davis, Miles Ahead, in 1957. Although he was already respected among his peers, Miles Ahead brought the pianist/composer/arranger far greater recognition. It wasn’t his first collaborative work with Miles, however, as the two had been co-creators of the spectacular Birth of the Cool nonet in 1948-49, which was celebrated among musicians but received little public attention and went relatively unnoticed for a number of years. Out of the Cool (Impulse AS-4) was recorded a short time after Evans completed a six-week job at the Jazz Gallery club in New York City; the personnel was largely the same (including such stars as Jimmy Knepper, Budd Johnson, Johnny Coles, and Ron Carter), with the addition of Elvin Jones.
