Evan Christopher’s Clarinet Road with David Torkanowsky at Ogden After Hours
/// December 8, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
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). Joining Evan, will be one of New Orleans premier pianists, David Torkanowsky.
