On 2012’s Flip the Script, he plays with a trio that includes bassist Ben Wolfe and Donald Edwards. Most of the tracks are four or five minutes long, and they’re generous with melody. The album opens with Question, a piece written by bassist Eric Revis that has a touch of Monk in it. The band swings hard and also embraces edgy abstraction, effortlessly erasing differences between playing in and out. Evans displays a big sound on Clean House, while a cover of Luther Vandross’s A Brand New Day evokes McCoy Tyner

Flip The Script may arguably be Orrin Evans finest release to date. While Evans celebrates his passion and our views on what is right and what is wrong are polar opposites it does not matter. Evans intention is to push the music forward. The hands of Orrin Evans are the right hands. The Philadelphia-born pianist is approaching 20 years as a recording artist and, by the sound of Flip The Script, he's in one of his most creative periods to date. Evans' other projects include the Captain Black Big Band whose eponymous 2011 Posi-Tone debut was a full-on big band blowout and Tarbaby, a small band with an edgier, darker, sound whose End Of Fear (Posi-Tone) was one of 2010's finest releases.

Pianist Orrin Evans' last three outings for the Posi-Tone label have been vastly different from one another. He forged new, edgy frontiers as part of the collectively formulated Tarbaby on The End Of Fear (Posi-Tone, 2010), put his own unique stamp on the big band format with the bold Captain Black Big Band (Posi-Tone, 2011), and gave a nod to Philadelphia, the city that formed and nurtured him, on the mostly trio-based Freedom (Posi-Tone, 2011). Flip The Script finds Evans working in trio mode again, but it's not more of the same
