Clarinetist Evan Christopher's acoustic trio presents classic New Orleans music as well as romantic standards with luminous elegance for dignified occasions. Devoid of clichés, caricatures, costumes or histrionics, Fleur-de-Three boasts Crescent City A-Listers, who can light up a room of any size with earthy urbanity, signature style and joie de vivre.

Like the New Orleans social dance music that evolved into Jazz, the Fleur-de-Lis symbol also had complex origins to transcend. Today, both are emblematic of the eminence of New Orleans towards which "Fleur-de-Three" aspires. The trio's core instrumentation of clarinet, bass and guitar provides acoustic music for all occasions, but is most effective in intimate settings, when one wants guests to feel the warm welcome that traditional New Orleans music has offered for over 100 years. This music is our specialty and even though we boast a large repertoire, requests in the genre are not only welcome but encouraged.

We relish opportunities to render the special moments of an event, such as receptions, ceremonies, or special dances, meaningful and memorable. The trio can be scaled back to a duo for very small events, but it can easily be expanded to a quartet or quintet. Additions can include, trumpet, rhythm guitar, piano (if a tuned acoustic piano is available), drums or even a vocalist (if an adequate P.A. system is available). Our audio samples reflect several possible combinations that all share the elegant aesthetic distinguishing "Fleur-de-Three" from most other "Jazz" bands, including other projects of my own!

Anchored in the musical vocabulary created by early Creole clarinetists such as Sidney Bechet, Omer Simeon, and Barney Bigard, Evan Christopher strives to extend the legacy of the New Orleans clarinet style. Charismatic and versatile, he was drawn to New Orleans from his native California in 1994 by the rich cultural landscape and music scene. Critics remarking on Christopher's dynamic expressiveness and intimate approach have coined his style "close-encounter music" (NEW YORK TIMES) and have called his respect for the music traditions of New Orleans, "a triumph, joining the present seamlessly to a glorious past." (THE OBSERVER, UK).
