Peter Evans Quartet: Live in Lisbon

Read "Live in Lisbon" reviewed by Troy Collins


Recorded at Portugal's Jazz em Agosto Festival in August of 2009, Live in Lisbon captures Peter Evans' longstanding quartet in concert, deconstructing a program of reconfigured standards--a regular feature of the New York-based trumpeter's oeuvre. Using classic American Songbook tunes as the basis for the quartet's freewheeling improvisations, Evans dismantles familiar melodies, harmonies and rhythms, rearranging ...

Peter Evans Quartet: The Peter Evans Quartet

Read "The Peter Evans Quartet" reviewed by John Sharpe

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
