Guitar Forms is a 1964 album by Kenny Burrell, featuring arrangements by Gil Evans.[1] However, the presence of the Evans' orchestra is somewhat misleading, as it appears on only five of the album's nine tracks; the most ambitious of these is the nearly 10-minute "Lotus Land." Three tracks are blues numbers in a small group format, and there is one solo performance: "Prelude #2."
