Orrin Evans has been recognized as one of the most inventive pianists of his generation. Evans is that rare musical force – a composer, pianist, bandleader, teacher, producer and arranger. Evans uses his musical influences to create an art experience comprised of American Songbook, spirituals, iconic jazz repertoire pieces by colleagues, plus his originals. Always pushing the boundaries of music – even questioning what it’s called – Evans attracts other brilliant, progressive musicians with a sound and style like no one else. Through 25 albums as a leader and co-leader, including his neo-soul/acid jazz ensemble Luv Park and the bracing collective trio Tarbaby, Evans has always followed a vigorously individual path.
