Bill Evans

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Sax player Bill Evans talks about his new album, “Dragonfly,” and about performing at the Blue Note April 10-14, which will include special guest appearances by players of Evans' pedigree: namely Mike Mainieri on vibes, John Medeski on keyboards and fusion legend trumpeter Randy Brecker. “Dragonfly” is his 19th solo album and third with his Soulgrass band, and it features a fiery ensemble that fuses Evans' lineage with American blues, bluegrass, and progressive jazz.
