Orrin Evans and Captain Black Big Band
Smoke Jazz Club and Lounge, Upper West Side Until Monday July 27 2015
Orrin Evans, a Philly pianist who approaches the jazz tradition with both reverence and a deep inquisitiveness, leads his fine, large ensemble, which translates postbop fire to the big-band canvas. Witness Mother's Touch, a bravura recent Posi-Tone set that divides its time between soulful reflection and high-wire dazzlement.
