Orrin Evans

A native of Philadelphia, Orrin studied the piano at Settlement Music School under Charles Pettaway. Though he studied formally for 3 years, Orrin attributes his knowledge of Jazz and the history of music to his main influence, his parents. "My mother is a classical vocalist, so there was always music in the house." Orrin also credits musicians Trudy Pitts, Tim Warfield, Kenny Barron, Ralph Peterson, Edgar Bateman, Mickey Roker and Bobby Durham for their guidance, support and inspiration.

For two years, Orrin has pioneered the piano chair for the legendary saxophonist Bobby Watson, evolutionary drummer Ralph Peterson and vocalist Denise King. He has toured the world with many different groups, including Bobby Watson, Antonio Hart and Wallace Roney, to name a few. He has also had the pleasure of having musicians such as Ralph Peterson, Sam Newsome, Ralph Bowen, Nasheet Waits, Ali Jackson, John Swana, and Mickey Roker in his own group.

Besides touring and doing some recording, Orrin has presented and performed in master classes, workshops and clinics in both the United States and Europe. He has made several television appearances in the United States and Europe, as well. When Orrin is not on the road, he teaches privately. His newest recording project for the Criss Cross Label entitled 'Captain Black' has recently been released.
