Over the past decade, the volume of solo trumpet work has made it a field, one blossoming into a beautiful array of styles and approaches from lyrically sentimental to severely stark. It is a field thick with talent making it all the more remarkable when something stands out as clearly as Peter Evans’ 2006 release More is More. On this album, Evans managed to strike the full range of expanded techniques with a virtuosic attack that rendered the trumpet a hissing, whistling, gurgling cauldron of infinite possibilities. In addition to leading his own quartet, Evans has performed with the world’s leading improvisers. His solo gigs, however, remain legendary. He will perform in the gallery where he may finally have met his architectural match. This event will take place in the gallery.
