Gil Evans Centennial Project Announced, Artist Share Coordinates
Artist Share, the web-based program that invites listeners and enthusiasts to help fund worthy musical productions, recently launched a drive to fund the Gil Evans Centennial Project, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of Gil Evans' birth. The object is to produce a recording realizing a number of Gil Evans scores that have never previously been recorded.
Artist Share makes it possible to have an impact on the music scene by helping to fund recordings and their release. Participants can pre-order a CD or download of the project and help in this way, or they can contribute various amounts as a sponsor. It is an interesting way to get music out that might not otherwise see the light of day. CIMP has been doing something similar for a number of years as well.
