There Comes A Time comes not only with a 3 bonus tracks (that are marked jsut modestly somewhere on the obi), but with a full, over 19-minutes version of "The Meaning Of The Blues", that originaly take not even 6 minutes. Absolute must for a fusion fan, great guitar solos by Kawasaki ("There Comes A Time" sounds like a hell of tribute to Mahavishnu Orchestra) and horns.

There Comes A Time ‎(CD, Album, RE, RM). BMG France. Gil Evans And His Orchestra. One of the advantages of the CD reissue is that there is a fuller version of The Meaning of the Blues (while I can't help thinking that the 16 minute There Comes a Time could have done with some pruning, the simple and constant bass line becoming very tedious after a while)

Gil Evans was born to Ian Ernest Green and Margaret Julia McConnachy on May 13, 1912. Originally named Ian Ernest Gilmore Green, he would eventually change his name from Green to Evans, taking the name of his step-father. Another collaboration from this period, Quiet Nights (1962) was issued later, against the wishes of Davis, who broke with his then-producer Teo Macero for a time as a result. In 1974, he released an album of his, and other band member's, arrangements of music by Hendrix with guitarists John Abercrombie and Ryo Kawasaki. 2007: Gil Evans and His Orchestra. 2007: Strange Fruit with Sting. 2009: Miles Davis – The Cool Jazz Sound.

The family soon moved to California, where he spent the first decades of his life. From 1946 onwards he lived and worked in New York City. Ian Ernest Gilmore "Gil" Evans (né Green) (May 13, 1912 – March 20, 1988) was a jazz pianist, arranger, composer and bandleader, active in the United States.

This CD reissue of Gil Evans' There Comes a Time differs greatly from the original LP of the same name. Not only are there three previously unreleased performances ("Joy Spring," "So Long," and "Buzzard Variation"), but "The Meaning of the Blues" has been expanded from six minutes to 20, and two numbers, "Little Wing" and "Aftermath the Fourth Movement/Children of the Fire," have been dropped (the former was reissued on Evans' Jimi Hendrix tribute album) and the remaining four tracks were.
