While Stern recovers from his tremendous injuries, saxophonist Bill Evans has stepped up to replace him so that the show may still go on. Evans himself has a long resume, including being the second major Bill Evans to play with Miles Davis on albums such as “We Want Miles” and “The Man with the Horn.”
Beginning in the ’90s, Evans stepped out on his own and started touring regularly with his own band, as well as collaborating with the likes of Herbie Hancock and Bela Fleck.
Evans is currently touring behind his most recent album, “Rise Above,” which is out now on Vansman Records. The Long’s Park show is still scheduled for August 21 at 7:30 p.m. For more information, click here.
