Recorded at Ratio ("Music Gallery Departures Series #2"), February 6, 2015.Peter Evans - [final section]
Taking another Departure from St. George The Martyr, the Music Gallery landed at Ratio's cozy space for this trio of solo sets. The night's headliner didn't physically fling anything at the audience, but the sheer density of his solo trumpet work made it feel not unlike the work of the night's earlier performers. Pushing his instrument into long passages of flight-of-the-bumblebee speedshredding at times made the set feel like an extended sprint — the sort of thing that leaves the audience short of breath while Evans, wrapping things up, simply called out for everyone to finish off all of the venue's remaining beer.
