“At the core of Evans’ musical sensibility is a sense of beauty and economy, as both an improviser and as a composer/arranger. “’I love the element of surprise when putting together a piece of music. That can be elusive, but sometimes a theme or just a couple of notes shows itself. That can be gratifying. I want the music to be enjoyable on the first listen, but open up and show its depth on repeated listening.’” As he strives for more and more clarity in his composition and performances, Evans observes that “’all we can ever hope for is to absorb many different influences as we go along and distill those into something unique and fresh.”
— Matt Snyder, 2015

“Already notable in a trio format, Evans’s distinctive compositions stand out given full quintet arrangements.”
— George Kanzler, Hot House
