Published: Mar 1, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 1, 2013)University of Kentucky School of Music, WRFL and Outside the Spotlight present "An Evening with Peter Evans." Trumpeter Peter Evans is considered one of the best improvisers in his field. Evans' visit to the Bluegrass will include a clinic and concert by the acclaimed musician.

 

A clinic in improvisation with Evans will be presented at noon Monday, March 4, in Room 22 of the Fine Arts Building. A solo concert featuring the artist will follow that evening at 8 p.m., at Mecca, located at 948 Manchester St. Both events are free and open to the public.

 

Evans is one of the most consistently accomplished and challenging improvisers in the world. Based in New York, he currently works in a wide variety of areas, including solo performance, chamber orchestras, free improvised settings, electro-acoustic music, jazz and composition.

 

As a musician, Evans has broadened the expressive range of the trumpet in both solo improvisation and group contexts. He currently performs with Peter Evans Trio, Quartet and Quintet, Moppa Elliott's terrorist bebop band Mostly Other People Do the Killing, the hyperactive improvisation duo Sparks (with Tom Blancarte), and a duo with trumpeter Nate Wooley. Other collaborators have included Evan Parker, Peter Brotzmann, Barry Guy, Jim Black, John Zorn, Mats Gustafsson, Axel Dörner and the International Contemporary Ensemble. 

 

In 2009 and 2010, Evans and was named as one of the top five "Musicians of the Year" in All About Jazz New York.
