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, for November's grand finale of his "Licorice Stick Sundays" series, Evan presents CLARINET ROAD: THE FAUBOURG VARIATIONS. Join Evan and a stellar cast of Crescent City A-Listers for a musical tour of New Orleans. Clairnet Road's latest project was made possible thanks to a Chamber Music America "New Jazz Works" grant, supported generously by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
Evan Christopher's Clarinet Road band tonight features:
Evan Christopher - clarinet
Jon-Erik Kellso - trumpet
David Torkanowsky - piano
Brian Seeger - guitar
Roland Guerin - bass
Herlin Riley - drums
