Hear Orrin Evans on piano, with Kevin Eubanks on guitar in a lively session: Video, Photos

There’s no taking pianist Orrin Evans out of his comfort zone. He’s just so musically articulate.

When Orrin made his album #knowingishalfthebattle, Kevin got the nod. When Kevin wanted an East Coast representation on his East West Time Line, the call went out to Orrin.

Meeting up on Morning Jazz, alongside bassist Luques Curtis and drummer Mark Whitfield, Jr., Orrin and Kevin created a relaxed yet energized hour made up of a Carla Bley nugget, a tune by Kenny Baker, and an original from both the pianist and guitarist, surrounding the playing with animated verbal exchanges — an indication of just how much fun this foursome was having.
