The Gil Evans Paris Workshop is a project led by Laurent Cugny, gathering a group of young Paris-based musicians around the music of Cugny and Gil Evans.
Spoonful, the formation’s first studio recording on Jazz&People, will be released in the spring of 2017 and contains material arranged by Cugny who finds inspiration in his years of collaboration with Evans in the late 1980s.
