So What!

My friend, Kimiko, and I are working on a performance.  One tune we’ll play is “So What!” that appears on Kind of Blue.  As I got into the introduction that Gil Evans wrote, I was ultimately led to Manuel de Falla.  On Sketches of Spain Gil Evans would cop de Falla’s El Amour burho But, what moves me is the intro to So What! that Gil Evans wrote.  It’s exploration in the Dorian mode is a work of art in itself that I feel is worthy of musical expression.  So be it!
