CHICAGO: One of the most astonishing young musicians on the new jazz scene, trumpeter Peter Evans has appeared fully-formed with a mind-blowing new concept and the technical chops to see it through. Appearing on the New York creative music front in 2003, Evans has quickly gained an audience for his group music and his solo work alike. His first solo CD, More is More, was released in 2006 on Evan Parker’s psi label, and it was clear evidence of a radical new vision for the instrument. Utilizing circular-breathing, a stunning range of multiphonics, and an incredible melodic imagination, Evans virtually reinvents the horn. Corbett vs.Dempsey is very pleased to present him in his only public performance on this visit to Chicago.
