a prodigious young trumpeter … Mr. Evans has risen to the top of the heap thanks to a passionate but understated sound, blending the influences of Woody Shaw, Lee Morgan and Roy Hargrove." —The New York Times Spend an evening with Master Jazz Trumpeter Josh Evans as he brings her formidable quartet to Zinc jazz club. He's supported by pianist David Bryant, bassist Alex Claffy and drummer Kush Abadey. Josh Evans, born and raised in Hartford, CT, was drawn to the trumpet after hearing a Roy Eldridge and Dizzy Gillespie recording at the age of 10. Josh began studying with Raymond 'Dr. Rackle' Williams and within a year he began performing regularly with Dr. Rackle's Sound Griot Brass Band. By the age of 14 Evans' musical career began to take shape when he started to study with and be mentored by the celebrated alto saxophonist/composer, and educator Jackie McLean. Studying under McLean who shared the bandstand with Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, and Art Blakey, would be pivotal in Josh's career. The experience would blaze the path for performances with Jackie McLean which included New York-based venues known as the Blue Note, Iridium, the Regattabar located in Boston, MA, and the Bushnell Center for Performing Arts in Hartford, CT.
