''Sketches of Spain'' is an album by Miles Davis, recorded between November 1959 and March 1960 at the Columbia 30th Street Studio in New York City.

The album pairs Davis with arranger and composer Gil Evans, with whom he had collaborated on several other projects, on a program of compositions largely derived from the Spanish folk tradition. (An extended version of the second movement of Joaquin Rodrigo's ''Concierto de Aranjuez'' is also included, as well as a song called "Will o' the Wisp", from the ballet El amor brujo by Manuel de Falla.) - Wikipedia
