Bad Plus keyboardist, “ORRIN EVANS TRIO” (and a drum icon!)

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 @ 7:15 pm - 8:30 pm

$15 – $25

Now the keyboardist for the legendary jazz band “Bad Plus”, Orrin Evans throughout his career has made an art form of the truly unexpected. With a collection of 25 indie albums to his credit, Orrin is the model of a fiercely independent artist who’s made a habit of rattling the jazz world’s confining cages. As a daring PIANIST, Evans combines a raw-edged vigor and left-field nuance into a sound wholly his own. As an adventurous COMPOSER he traverses stylistic boundaries with abandon, drawing on full-throttle swing, deep-rooted blues, expressive soul or bracing excursions into the avant-garde. As an audacious BANDLEADER, he delights in daring fellow musicians to take bold risks. Evans’ fierce determination has produced major accolades like being #1 “Rising Star Pianist” in the 2018 DownBeat Critics Poll.

Evans’ free-thinking approach has led to a stunning variety of collaborations with a who’s-who of modern jazz including Christian McBride, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Sean Jones, JD Allen, Nasheet Waits, Kevin Eubanks and countless others.
