Precursors of Cool Jazz could be heard during the Swing Era in the behind-the-beat tasteful tenor saxophone playing of Lester Young, and in Gil Evans's subtle, inventive and distinctive arrangements for the Claude Thornhill band. Besides those Cool Jazz individuals mentioned earlier in this article, other distinguished luminaries of that era, which began in the late 1950s, included Chet Baker, Bill Evans, Stan Getz, Paul Desmond, Dave Brubeck, Jim Hall, Lee Konitz, Gerry Mulligan, Shorty Rogers, Bob Brookmeyer, Zoot Sims, Jimmy Giuffre, Art Pepper and Chico Hamilton, to name a few.
