O’s Notes: Stan plays tenor sax and composed all of the music for Evoke. He also assembled a strong band with guitarist Mike Moreno, Benito Gonzalez (p), Corcoran Holt (b) and drummer McClenty Hunter. The program could be classified as modern jazz or fusion and either way it has soothing, cool characteristics. Lead lines are shared between Moreno, Gonzalez and Killian unselfishly. They cook on the burners like “Observation” and swing on “Hindu” and “Beekman”, just a few of the gems.
