Evan Christopher combines virtuosity, immaculate taste, and enthusiasm with a deep commitment to exploring the full range of possibilities of the New Orleans clarinet tradition. His highly personal brand of "contemporary early-jazz" strives to expand the unique musical vocabulary created by early Creole musicians such as Sidney Bechet, Omer Simeon, and Barney Bigard.

Christopher's journey on Clarinet Road began in 1994 when he left his native California to join the New Orleans music community. Diverse work included gigs with musicians such as Al Hirt or veterans of Preservation Hall to funk and brass bands including the Nightcrawlers and Galactic until he accepted regular work with the Jim Cullum Jazz Band of San Antonio, Texas in 1996. For nearly three years, he appeared nightly as their featured clarinetist and recorded several of their syndicated radio programs, Riverwalk: Live from the Landing.

When Christopher returned to New Orleans, published research and presentations on the New Orleans clarinet style initiated pursuit of a Masters degree in Musicology at Tulane University. He also began producing his "Clarinet Road" series of CDs (STR Digital) and touring internationally. Other recordings have found him alongside many New Orleans artists including Big Al Carson, Duke Heitger, Irvin Mayfield, Uncle Lionel Battiste, and Tom McDermott. After the the Federal levees failed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in August, 2005, he accepted an artist residency in Paris at the invitation of the French government and formed his current group, Django à la Créole. This Europe-based quartet fuses Gypsy Swing with New Orleans grooves and rhythms of le monde Créole. Three CDs for (Frémeaux & Associés) "Django à la Créole" 2007, "Finesse" 2010, and LIVE 2014 have all gained critical attention and earned the group a worldwide reputation for its elegant, acoustic character.

Having returned permanently to New Orleans in 2008, Christopher is an advocate for the cultural workforce and jazz-based music education. He taught briefly at the University of New Orleans where he coached a "New Orleans Music Ensemble" that performed with guest mentors such as Lucien Barbarin and Marcus Roberts. Locally, although it is rare to find him performing in bars, hotels or restaurants, he does appear occasionally as a guest with groups such as the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra and jazz composer guild, NOLA ArtHouse Music. He also writes columns about the music scene for

As a composer, his original songs are the high point of acclaimed recordings such as "Delta Bound " (Arbors, 2007) featuring pianist Dick Hyman, "The Remembering Song " (Arbors, 2010) featuring guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, and the Grammy-winning New Orleans Jazz Orchestra's "Book One." (2012). In July 2010, he had the honor to debut his "Treat It Gentle Suite," the first concerto written for clarinet and jazz band in the New Orleans style, with the Minnesota Orchestra. Mr. Christopher began his musical training on clarinet at age 11. In high school, he received the Louis Armstrong National Jazz Award and was one of the first graduates of the prestigious Idyllwild Arts Academy. He continued studies at the University of Southern California and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree from California State University, Long Beach.
