Evan Christopher – Mindset – It’s New Orleans
Evan Christopher is a New Orleans based jazz clarinetist and composer. He is known for his unique style which blends contemporary jazz with the styles of early New Orleans jazz musicians.
Dr. Nick sits down with Evan to see how a boy from Long Beach, California came to appreciate New Orleans’ style jazz, and how that appreciation grew into Evan becoming one of the most respected and lauded jazz musicians in New Orleans.
Evan also talks about how being the product of both adoption and divorce has affected his current relationship, how he sort of fell into becoming an ambassador for New Orleans, and why being a musician is not something to be taken lightly.
