Pianist Orrin Evans and Likemind Collective: Pushing The Boundaries Of Music Together
Here's a show not to be missed! One of Philadelphia's star jazz residents, pianist Orrin Evans, will perform on September 11th with his Likemind Collective at World Cafe Live. Some super-talented jazz artists will showcase their latest works and keep you smiling. The Likemind Collective includes Evans, bassist Eric Revis, drummer Nasheet Waits, vocalist J.D. Walter, and saxophonist Oliver Lake. This is Likemind's debut in Philadelphia; last week they made a splash in NYC at the famed Jazz Standard.
Due to their need to stretch, they've created unique structures to support their artistic explorations. First Evans, Revis, and drummer Nasheet Waits co-created the collaborative concept TARBABY. Now all have joined forces with the former Philadelphia resident JD Walter to create the Likemind Collective, a larger evolving artist and business collective that represents their musical family expanding and their progressive Likemind.
Tune in on Friday nights from 6 to 10 pm for Jeff Duperon's mix of new releases and emerging artists in jazz, on Jazz with Jeff Duperon, on member-supported WRTI 90.1 FM and online at WRTI.org
