  • Peter Evans

Trumpeter Peter Evans is a part of the mid-career generation of jazz artists jumping in on a gig or recording date anytime a laureled player or director calls their name. Unlike the old days, when musicians would incessantly sit in for jazz and blues sessions, musicians like Peter Evans dive into chamber orchestras, electronic music and shows combining avant-garde jazz and performance art. On Thursday, the NYC-based horn player will stick loosely to the jazz on his five solo albums and his seven with the acute quartet Mostly Other People Do the Killing. In 2014, the group recorded a meticulous piece of performance art overlapping in jazz, recreating Miles Davis’ iconic Kind of Blue note for note, raising questions on improvisation, chops and the canon. Evans will perform with trombonist Steve Parker, artist-in-residence at Austin’s Blanton Museum of Art and ensemble director at UTSA. $10, 8pm, High Wire Arts Gallery, 326 W Josephine, (210) 320-5702 —Matt Stieb
