Orrin Evans' Captain Black Big Band

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm nightly:

Orrin Evans has followed a vigorously individual path through 25 albums as a leader and co–leader. Through four nights, Jazz Standard celebrates his style–spanning creativity as the acclaimed pianist and composer takes the helm of three distinctly different aggregations.

In 2014, Evans released the first studio recording by his Captain Black Big Band, which is fast becoming one of the most loved and respected big bands in the country. Mother’s Touch (Posi–Tone) proved a wonderfully engaging set of hard–hitting performances by some of the most in–demand players on the New York scene. “Compulsively cool and driving: smart, complex, hip, in the pocket, fully alive with modern energy!” (Pop Matters)
