Evan Christopher & Clarinet Road

For the third "Licorice Stick Sunday" I have ferocious and fearless organist Joe Ashlar, Don Vappie on guitar and hard-swinging drummer Troy Davis. This tribute to Sidney Bechet focuses on his amazing command of the blues and the organ trio will deliver well-known Bechet compositions as they've never been heard before as well as some rarities.
