Evan Christopher combines virtuosity, immaculate taste, and enthusiasm with a commitment to exploring the full range of possibilities in the New Orleans clarinet tradition. His highly personal brand of “contemporary, early jazz” strives to extend the legacies of early Creole clarinetists such as Sidney Bechet, Barney Bigard and Omer Simeon. Critics remarking on Christopher’s dynamic expressiveness have coined his style “close-encounter music” (NEW YORK TIMES) and have called his respect for the music traditions of New Orleans, “a triumph, joining the present seamlessly to a glorious past.” (THE OBSERVER, UK). Join Evan for a dynamic showcase of originals and New Orleans classics that aims to celebrate and extend the New Orleans clarinet tradition.
Tonight, Evan Christopher's "Licorice Stick Sundays" series presents JAZZ A LA CREOLE featuring Don Vappie
Evan enlists New Orleans living legend "Papa" Don Vappie to demonstrate the Afro-Caribbean roots of New Orleans music and the Creole clarinet tradition.
