Orrin Evans, a powerful pianist and jazz iconoclast who recently joined the Bad Plus, is always at the nexus of interesting projects and music. He often leads a raucously swinging quintet and this one is no exception. In a recent profile the New York Times reports, “Mr. Evans is a viable candidate for jazz’s most resourceful and invigorating contemporary pianist. He is probably the closest heir we have to Geri Allen — the first postmodern piano master in jazz, who died last year at 60 — and a homier counterpart to the pianist Jason Moran.” All About Jazz adds he’s “one hell of a jazz pianist.”
