Musicians we have mentored say...


Evan has been a generous and effective mentor to me for several years. He’s a professional in every sense with communication skills that  show he's listening. His passion for New Orleans jazz and its greats is infectious and make me want to practice more! 


Ryan Calloway Renaissance Man, San Francisco, CA


Evan intuitively recognizes very individual struggles. In my case, having relied heavily on transcriptions of the greats, he showed me ways to unlock my creative potential, building upon what I already had under my fingers!"


Susanne Ortner - Musician, Germany


As a jazz saxophonist born in New Orleans, when it was time to deal with the legacy of Sidney Bechet, I knew I wanted to work with Evan. His open view of the tradition gives him a deep understanding of the style's creators because he hears them in a contemporary way."


Calvin Johnson - Musician, New Orleans, LA
