Fall 2016 shows and new records: Solo and Quintet

Label news:

I've moved everything onto peterevansmusic.bandcamp.com for easier purchasing and listening.

The old stuff is on there, as will be the forthcoming records. There will also be music posted there that sounds great but never made it to a physical album format, for instance the House Special band, which has a professional quality recording for free download. 

Keep an eye out for new solo and Quintet recordings.  More is More will be releasing the solo album "Lifeblood"; three live performances from the 2015/16 season, 110 minutes of music expertly recorded, mixed and mastered.  Release October 1st 2016. These will be the first widely available solo recordings from PE in 6 years.  Full album released in download and custom USB format October 1st.  Release show Oct. 7th at Pioneer Works in NYC. Info below.

The PE Quintet's new album "Genesis", taken primarily from our 2015 European tour,  will be released November 1st.  Our most ambitious and expansive record to date.
