The inventive and bold pianist Orrin Evans is back with a new project called Flip The Script. On this effort, Evans heads a fantastic trio, which includes Ben Wolfe on bass and Donald Edwards on drums. The adventurous combo stretches out on mostly Evans’ originals or less-traveled works by other composers and presents it in its own refreshingly different way. The unit moves together through grooves, swings and ballads with the precision of a Swiss watch. This isn’t background music, but decidedly front and center in a way that you can not ignore for its sheer artistry. Great stuff.
