JAZZ ROOM presents Grammy-Winning Evan Christopher’s Clarinet Road Featuring Don Vappie
Jan 20 - 21, 2023 • Stage Door Theater
Evan Christopher is recognized as one of the most distinguished ambassadors of his instrument. With Clarinet Road, Evan and friends explore the full range of possibilities of their respective instruments within the New Orleans tradition. Emphasis on the Afro-Creole roots of the city's culture anchors Clarinet Road's dynamic presentations.
Evan Christopher combines virtuosity, immaculate taste and enthusiasm with a commitment to exploring the full range of possibilities in the New Orleans clarinet tradition. His highly personal approach strives to extend the legacies of early clarinet heroes such as Sidney Bechet, Barney Bigard and Omer Simeon. Critics remarking on his dynamic expressiveness have coined his style “close-encounter music” (NEW YORK TIMES) and have called his respect for the music of New Orleans, “a triumph, joining the present seamlessly to a glorious past.” (THE OBSERVER, UK).
