Orrin Evans has been compared to John Coltrane's legendary pianist, McCoy Tyner, most notably by NPR, who said Evans "brings a bold intensity to the piano, seemingly informed by McCoy Tyner's voicings and a heavyweight boxer's roundhouse punches." You'll hear the resemblance even more when Evans expands his usual trio to include J.D. Allen on saxophone for a Coltrane-inspired evening at the 2016 Biamp PDX Jazz Festival. Jimmy Mak's is the place, and old-school cool is the vibe.
