Taking jazz ensembles into the 21st century, the Peter Evans Quintet incorporates real-time sound processing with traditional instruments. These live electronics allow the group to change their sound fluidly from mellow tones to jagged rattling to cacophonous reverberation. The quintet draws on traditional jazz idioms as source material and contorts them into something resembling classical European avant-garde—complete with complex rhythms played with pinpoint accuracy and confounding extended techniques.

Peter Evans Quintet:

Peter Evans (trumpets/compositions)
Ron Stabinsky (piano)
Tom Blancarte (bass)
Jim Black (drums)
Sam Pluta (live electronics)
