The Jazz Estate
The Jazz Estate welcomes Evan Paydon on to the stage. Returning from New Orleans for one performance he will bring a show filled with his own compositions, creative passion and a group of highly skilled musicians.
The show will feature: Russ Johnson- Trumpet Chris Newlin- Guitar Maurice Liddell- Drums Evan Paydon- Electric and Upright Bass
Evan’s relationship with music is significantly informed by improvisation. He believes it is the responsibility of a musician to become an open window through which the language of music can pass, and to understand music as the contribution of an articulate dialog to a greater conversation, the topic of which is betterment of self and community. He hopes that his compositions for this particular night will reflect his own experiences into the ears, hearts, and minds of the audience creating a cathartic experience for them.
Evan is currently based in New Orleans and studies Graduate Jazz Performance at the University of New Orleans. He performs professionally in numerous groups applying his skills and experience to a variety of genres internationally and regionally.
