Weekend in NoMad: Orrin Evans
Orrin Evans will be in the NoMad neighborhood this weekend. The composer, pianist and bandleader will front two separate groups over the course of four nights at Jazz Standard. Tonight will be the second of two nights that Orrin Evans performs with a trio and then he will perform for the rest of the weekend as part of a quintet.
Born in 1976, the Trenton, NJ native has been described by the NY Times as “a poised artist with an impressive template of ideas at his command.” Two GRAMMY Award nominations and a Pew Fellowship later, Orrin Evans has established himself as a preeminent improviser of his generation.
These shows should be fantastic! Have a great weekend!
