braddutzcollection this is incredible original music with great creativity and unique approach to ensemble playing mixed with free form improvisation

Cosmographer In my opinion this album is, along with Ghosts, Evans' best recording, featuring some of his most remarkable compositions to date. Wormhole in particular is a true tour de force and a sign of Evans' maturity as an artist. 100% recommended!

ethanavery My favorite peter record. The arrival of years of conceptual exploration, it’s unlike anything else and marks a new standard for progressive jazz. In the future I might imagine a group recording fantastic music in this new vein, but I can’t imagine a frontman half as skilled as peter. For I and many, it’s bird to Coltrane to peter. I own this on vinyl and have already had many listening sessions with close friends from top to bottom. I believe peter’s music the best in jazz today Favorite track: Sphere.

    I can't find an option for this on the album page.
    It's too risky and the items get lost or damaged too often.
    The average cost for a European shipment of one record is around 30 USD, which I don't want to ask people to pay and I can't afford to cover it anymore.
    If you buy this album to ship from anywhere outside of US I will most likely refund you immediately.
    It's probably best for European customers to go A-Musik in Cologne - they have copies of both Horizons and B&B: www.a-musik.com

The first release from Evans' new group Being & Becoming, featuring some of the leading lights from the next generation of creative musicians: Joel Ross, Nick Jozwiak, and Savannah Harris. This debut album features a set of new compositions from Evans, moving between notated chamber music textures, free improvisations, deep grooves and telepathic ensemble playing.

Being & Becoming represents a new chapter in Evans' commitment to composition and improvisation in a small-group format. After working with a variety of ensembles that feature electronics, Being & Becoming is a totally acoustic venture. Like Evans, all three of his new bandmates move effortlessly from very traditional musical contexts to the most forward-thinking. The group has been slowly refining its concept in NYC since 2017. The quartet's 2020 self-titled record on Evans' More is More Records marks another point of evolution in his commitment to composing for creative musicians.
