Peter Evans is one of the most extremely innovative trumpet players as well as the creative leader of groups and projects such as Zebulon Trio or the Peter Evans Quintet (with whom he recorded his astonishing Ghosts in 2011). Jon Irabagon, winner of the 2008 Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition, has recorded with such artists as diverse as Barry Altschul, Dave Liebman, Wynton Marsalis or Mary Halvorson, among others. They are both part of Mostly Other People Do The Killing, a jazz quartet also featuring ‘Moppa’ Elliott (bass) and Kevin Shea (drums).
