* Orrin Evans (DCJF) (Livestream)

June 23, 2020 @ 8:30 pm
DC Jazz Festival from Home
Donations Encouraged

Orrin Evans was always known as a monster pianist in his native Philadelphia and up-and-down the east coast, leading a variety of groups including the Captain Black Big Band, where you could be as likely to hear cascading, symphonic jazz as David Bowie covers. He reached a new level of respect and recognition as the new pianist in The Bad Plus, replacing founding member Ethan Iverson.

Evans own touch on the piano is full of surprises; while he never swerves into full atonality, his brand of post-bop veers in and out of old-school, lush harmony and fiercely restless, searching melodic development.

He performs in a live stream as part of the DC Jazz Fest from Home
