RAVENSCROFT CONCERT SERIES – Tarbaby with Orrin Evans, Eric Revis & Nasheet Waits

“I like to make things happen… I like to connect the dots, get a bunch of people together and see what happens from that mix.” – Orrin Evans

Kicking off the Ravenscroft Concert Series for the 2024-25 season,

Orrin Evans, Eric Revis & Nasheet Waits and their powerhouse group Tarbaby are set to deliver an unforgettable performance. Pianist Orrin Evans, celebrated for his fearless and versatile approach to jazz, brings a rich history of musical innovation and accolades, including Grammy nominations and a Rising Star Pianist title from DownBeat Critics Poll. With bassist Eric Revis and drummer Nasheet Waits, Tarbaby embodies the dynamic spirit of modern jazz, blending structured freedom with intense improvisation. Don’t miss this thrilling evening of cutting-edge jazz as they ignite the stage at Ravenscroft!


Tarbaby absorbs everything from Thelonious Monk and Charles Mingus to John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman, sending it all back in torrents of molten musicianship. For two nights at the Casbah, get scorched by a group that “interacts beautifully” and “makes every second count” (Jazz Times).
“A fine and provocative post-bop unit,” says The New York Times, “TARBABY does what it wants.” The jazz combo earns its prerogative with an impeccable pedigree. Pianist Orrin Evans is a “poised artist with . . . ideas at his command” (NY Times). Drummer Nasheet Waits, son of jazz legend Freddie Waits, is a key member of Jason Moran’s Bandwagon. Bassist Eric Revis, a longtime Branford Marsalis collaborator, “stretches the jazz fabric without ripping it apart” (Jazz Times). Saxophonist Oliver Lake is an elder statesman of the jazz avant-garde.
