The Point of the Moon

Falkner Evans - The Point of the Moon

“The comfort zone is not where a truly creative artist takes up permanent residence. 

After three trio recordings that established him as one of the most vivid post-bop stylists on the present jazz scene, pianist and composer Falkner Evans has expanded his tonal palette for The Point Of The Moon.  The result is his most ambitious and rewarding album, one that demonstrates his growth as a skilled instrumentalist and his newly emerging gifts as a small group arranger. The point of departure for Evans may be  solidly crafted modern jazz with nods to hard bop and sights beyond, but his own spin on the tradition has never been so boldly executed.”
— Steve Futterman, 2011 

 

The Point of the Moon is most assuredly something different, and decidedly a move forward for the pianist/composer. Evans emerges into the ethereal light cast by the luminescence of this musical moonglow; bold, vivid imagination intact and in the  company of capable, dedicated, accomplished musicians.”

— C. J. Bond,  Jazz Music, June 2011
