Evan Christopher's Django a la Creole
Show Time 8pm / Doors Open 6:30pm

Evan Christopher (Clarinet), David Blenkhorn (Guitar), Dave Kelbie (Guitar), Sebastien Girardot (Bass).
European Gypsy swing with the music and rhythms of New Orleans, the Caribbean and Brazil. Evan Christopher is arguably the world’s finest clarinettist and possibly the greatest of all time! He combines virtuosity and immaculate taste with a strong root in New Orleans jazz. Elegant and impassioned, Evan's style is steeped in the tradition of early jazz masters such as Sidney Bechet, Jimmie Noone, and Barney Bigard. With guitarists David Blenkhorn and Dave Kelbie, and bassist Sebastien Girardot, he celebrates the music of the legendary Django Reinhardt and enlivens swing-era classics with fresh interpretations and virtuosic improvisation.
Their first CD, Django à la Créole was released to much worldwide acclaim. The 2nd, ‘Finesse’ was the 2010 Sunday Times jazz album of the year!
"[Evan] is, in my estimation, not only the greatest jazz clarinetist alive, but one of the greatest of all time" – Ahmet Ertegun, Founding Chairman of Atlantic Records.
"A forthright sound and a hungry energy" – New York Times.
“In the history of jazz, he will be amidst the greatest of all times” – Jazz Classique.
“A remarkably cohesive and constant swing” – Jazzman.
“Repertory music of the best kind” – Wall St Journal.
"Enchanting" – The Sunday Observer.
