Orrin Evans
One of the leading pianists of his generation, Orrin Evans regularly blurs the lines between bluesiness and abstraction, muscularity and tenderness. Here, he leads three bands: the quintet heard on his latest CD, Liberation Blues, released on Smoke's in-house label (7pm); a trio with bassist Vicente Archer and drummer Lil' John Roberts (9pm); and a scaled-down version of his Captain Black Big Band (10:30pm).
