Evans, Peter: Lifeblood [USB Drive] (More Is More)

Label: More Is More    
Released in: USA    

"Lifeblood is Peter Evans' return to the solo album after a 5 year break. In the interim, there have been countless tours and concerts, as well as Evans' artist residencies at both Issue Project Room (2014) and Roulette Intermedium (2015/16), to both of which solo music was a central component. Lifeblood is comprised mainly of two very different live performances. The title piece is from a small club in Cleveland (April 2016), and chronologically sits nearly last in the collection. "Prophets" is another full length piece, recorded as the opening concert of Evans' time at Roulette in fall 2015, after one week of practicing in the space with the PA. The short pieces, which also exist on film, are vignettes meant to tell a brief story with a more limited range of textures. "Pathways (for Rajna Swaminathan)" was recorded at the last minute and focuses entirely on one rhythmic texture that can be found for brief moments in the longer pieces. In general, there are many such cross-connections of material spread out over all the pieces, which were performed over a 6 month period."-More Is More

Biography for: Peter Evans

"Peter Evans is a trumpet player, and improvisor/composer based in New York City since 2003. Evans is part of a broad, hybridized scene of musical experimentation and his work cuts across a wide range of modern musical practices and traditions. Peter is committed to the simultaneously self-determining and collaborative nature of musical improvisation as a compositional tool, and works with an ever-expanding group of musicians and composers in the creation of new music. His primary groups as a leader are the Peter Evans Quintet and the Zebulon trio. In addition, Evans has been performing and recording solo trumpet music since 2002 and is widely recognized as a leading voice in the field, having released several recordings over the past decade. He is a member of the cooperative groups Pulverize the Sound (with Mike Pride and Tim Dahl) and Rocket Science (with Evan Parker, Craig Taborn and Sam Pluta) and is constantly experimenting and forming new configurations with like minded players. As a composer, he has been commissioned by the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Yarn/Wire, the Donaueschingen Musiktage Festival, the Jerome Foundation's Emerging Artist Program, and the Doris Duke Foundation for the 2015 Newport Jazz Festival. Evans has presented and/or performed his works at major festivals worldwide and tours his own groups extensively. He has worked with some of the leading figures in new music: John Zorn, Kassa Overall, Jim Black, Weasel Walter, Levy Lorenzo, Nate Wooley, Steve Schick, Mary Halvorson, Joe McPhee, George Lewis, and performs with both ICE and the Wet Ink Ensemble. He has been releasing recordings on his own label, More is More, since 2011."
