Herschal Evans

3 posts in this topic

Jazz From Blue Lake celebrated the short life of tenor saxophonist Herschal Evans last night, the original “Texas Tenorman” who played a key role in the Count Basie Orchestra of the 1930’s, the “old testament” band. Evans big Coleman Hawkins-inspired sound was as a foil to the melodic rhythms of tenor saxophonist Lester Young. Hear for yourself, on-line right now under “Jazz From Blue Lake,” here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand

Is that the official, historically definite spelling of his first name according to latest research?
