Tuesday, May 22, 7:30 PM at The Other Side, 2011 Genesee St., Utica
In our ten plus years of jazz at TOS we have never featured a bigger national jazz figure than pianist Orrin Evans who is the new pianist in The Bad Plus, one of the most popular and creative bands in jazz today. In his 25 albums as a band leader Evans has been consistently both innovative and swinging. Watkins and Evans, old friends who play regularly together, are joined for this gig by Tony Marino, a super bassist who has worked and recorded with some of the biggest names in jazz and by Mike Cortese on drums and our own Mike Dubaniewicz on sax. Do not miss this show, which promises to be one of our best ever! $15 adult, $8 students.
