EVAN Christopher is arguably the world’s finest clarinettist and possibly the greatest of all time.
You can judge for yourself this Friday when he performs European gypsy swing with the music and rhythms of New Orleans, the Caribbean and Brazil.
Evan combines virtuosity and immaculate taste with a strong root in New Orleans jazz. Elegant and impassioned, his style is steeped in the tradition of early jazz masters such as Sidney Bechet, Jimmie Noone and Bernard Bigard.
With guitarists David Blenkhorn and Dave Kelbie, and bassist Sebastien Girardot, he celebrates the music of the legendary Django Reinhardt and enlivens swing-era classics with fresh interpretations.
