CONTEMPORARY EARLY NEW ORLEANS JAZZ
The JAZZ ROOM presents New Orleans Jazz like you’ve never heard it, from clarinet virtuoso Evan Christopher.
Grammy-winner Evan Christopher combines virtuosity, immaculate taste, and enthusiasm with a commitment to exploring the full range of possibilities in the New Orleans clarinet tradition. His highly personal brand of “contemporary, early jazz” strives to extend the legacies of early Creole clarinetists such as Sidney Bechet, Barney Bigard and Omer Simeon. “A triumph, joining the present seamlessly to a glorious past.” -THE OBSERVER, UK.
The JAZZ ROOM provides a casual and intimate setting with tables and a full bar, reminiscent of the classic jazz rooms of yesteryear.
