The Peter Evans Quartet
Firehouse 12 Records
In his noisy debut as a bandleader, trumpeter Peter Evans squeezes forth brash sounds at once familiar and obscure. Unspooling long, spiky reels of notes in stream-of-consciousness fashion and flying to the extremes of his instrument’s tonal range, Evans tosses his ideas into a great, haphazard heap of tottering phrases. Brandon Seabrook chunks and trills on guitar, also adding murky electronics at opportune moments, while drummer Kevin Shea kicks at the foundations and bassist Tom Blancarte crafts a wry running commentary.
