“Follow Your Heart” reviewed in the Washington Times

William F. Gavin reviews the Joe Evans autobiography Follow Your Heart for the The Washington Times.

“For every Armstrong or Ellington or Charlie Parker, there were countless musicians, their names unknown even to jazz fans, whose skill gave jazz the solid foundation it needed. In Follow Your Heart, jazz journeyman Joe Evans, now in his 90s, presents the story of the sideman, the unsung hero of the golden age of jazz, someone who could read music, learn new tunes quickly, take solos if necessary and swing all the time.”
