Fantastic album!

Ross McKillop

There's a who's-who lineup of guests on this one! Some of the earliest "jam band" pioneers - Gregg and Warren of the Allman Brothers, right up to the current kings - Joe Russo, Jake Cinninger, Marco Benevento... Throw in some guitar geniuses like Mike Stern, Anders Osborne, Scott Metzger... With Bill leading the way? Epic. Under-the-radar album of 2016.

About Bill Evans

No relation to the other Bill Evans, this saxophonist has an adventurous spirit and strong improvising skills despite his utilization of a rapper on some records. Evans started on piano before switching to tenor. He moved to New York in 1978 and was with Miles Davis during most of 1981-1984. He also played with John McLaughlin's short-lived, re-formed Mahavishnu Orchestra in the mid-'80s, was with Elements from 1982 on, and has recorded as a leader for Lipstick, including with his 1990s group Petite Blonde. Subsequent solo dates include 1995's Escape, 1997's Starfish & the Moon, and 1999's Touch. ~ Scott Yanow
