Orrin  Evans
Upcoming Performances 

My fellow musicians: Can we agree to stop asking people to "support live music"? We don't ask people to support farmers by eating vegetables. We tell them to help themselves by eating more vegetables...it's good for you. How about, "Have you had your recommended daily allowance of live music today?"
~David Gibson
