Yve Evans (Burbank, CA)
Yve has performed all around the world...Japan, Canada, Spain and Italy are a few places that come to mind. Evans has played with some of the greats in jazz and cut five CDs. (All done live and in only one take the way jazz was meant to be.) Evans was educated in the United States, Japan and Europe. Evans was mentored by internationally renowned choral conductor Jester Harriston and attended the University of Califorina, Irvine, School of Fine Arts where she studied Opera and Theater. Evans' band (she calls it her Company) is comprised of some of the industry's most accomplished musicians. Each performance shows a dedication to the tradition and understanding of jazz and it's timeless repertoire. The goal is sharing the sheer joy and freedom that her music brings, or at the very least taking the audience on a musical roller coaster ride with Yve at the helm.
