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 ...

Read "The Peter Evans Quartet" reviewed by John Sharpe

The exclamation mark which adorns the cover of Peter Evans Quartet's debut and, quintupled, gives the title for the opening piece, has never been more appropriate. Watch out. This is a record not to be messed with. The band explodes out of the starting gate and rarely let up over the course of the fifty-five minute ...

Read "The Peter Evans Quartet" reviewed by Nic Jones

It can be argued that a kind of pluralist sensibility lies at the heart of this music. Trumpeter Peter Evans is the embodiment of it in the way he combines the music here with the willingness to play the piccolo trumpet in a Baroque setting elsewhere. He is, thus, evidently a man of parts; and even ...

Between the fifteen-second song “How Long and the nearly nine-minute “Tag, you're left wondering if your CD player is in need of a cleaning. You ponder if the laser isn't unlike a diamond stylus of an LP player. Those of us who grew up with vinyl remember dropping the arm in the middle of a track, ...

Peter Evans Quartet: The Peter Evans Quartet

Read "The Peter Evans Quartet" reviewed by Troy Collins

Occasionally, a debut album from a new artist arrives that so perfectly encapsulates the prevailing zeitgeist, it sounds like the visionary work of a seasoned veteran.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
