Oakland Freedom Jazz Society Presents:

Karl Evangelista’s Song & Dance Trio

Karl Evangelista’s Song & Dance Trio is…

Karl Evangelista: guitar, composer  

Jordan Glenn: drums  

Cory Wright: baritone saxophone

Filipino-American guitarist/composer Karl Evangelista ranks among a new wave of creative musicians grounded in jazz, 20th century experimentalism, and popular song, exploring the place of multiculturalism and ethnic co-existence in an increasingly post-cultural, trans-idiomatic cultural space. Evangelista’s music has been called “essential current-and-future listening,” a “near-seamless blend of modern jazz, contemporary structuralist composition, indie rock, and blues rock” (Tiny Mix Tapes). This complex, powerful aesthetic fosters an “otherworldly experience” that is “completely original” (Eugene Weekly).
