Photos: Jazz Cruise 2017

I just got back last week from the 2017 Jazz Cruise in the Caribbean. I had an awesome time. Me, Mike Stern, Randy Brecker, Dennis Chambers and Tommy Kennedy played as a band on the ship. At least 80 musicians took part. Scuba diving, etc. Belize City, Casa de Maya, Cozumel, Key West. What an incredible time! More photos here.

The DPA d:vote 4099S Instrument Microphone

Gear update! I’m using a fantastic new wireless microphone for my saxes – the DPA d:vote™ 4099S Instrument Microphone. It’s the best mic I’ve used for my tenor and soprano saxophones. I am blown away by these new mics! It gives me an exact reproduction of my sound. Congrats to DPA for doing a great job!

BillEvansLondon4

UPDATE: check out what Jazzwise Magazine (link opens in a new window/tab) had to say about our gig last week at Ronnie Scott’s! And if you think that one was “face melting” – this gig at the Jazz Cafe will be the FACE MELTINGEST EVER! LOL :) :)

Heya London! We’re coming for you! On August 9th at The Jazz Cafe we’re going to have our “Rise Above Album Release Show” – one epic night with the Bill Evans Band. We’ll be giving away copies of the new album, there’ll be an open “meet and greet”, and a whole lotta killer music!

Grab tickets now (or really do it in style by booking a table, which you can do here) to make sure you don’t miss out!
