June 26, 2013

joshevansEveryone had a blue period and Mr. Davis was no exception. To pay proper tribute Smoke Jazz & Supper Club brings you The Josh Evans Sextet!
Josh Evans, born and raised in Hartford, Connecticut, started playing the trumpet when he was ten. His musical career was to be shaped by meeting and being mentored by the great Jackie McLean beginning at age 13. While attending the Greater Hartford Academy of the Performing Arts High School, Josh was selected for the All-American Grammy High School Jazz Band, won the Wynton Kelly Award and an Outstanding Soloist Award from Down Beat magazine. Josh has performed with many notables, including Cedar Walton, Rashied Ali, Benny Golson, Mickey Bass, Terell Stafford, Winard Harper, Shelia Jordan, Steve Davis, and Valery Ponomarev.

Here’s tonights’ line-up;
Josh Evans (trumpet) • Vincent Herring (alto saxophone) •
Abraham Burton (tenor saxophone) •
Orrin Evans (piano) •
Dezron Douglas (bass) • Chris Beck (drums)

The first set is at 7pm! See you there…
