Saxophonist Bill Evans made a big name for himself in the early ’80s, when he was in his early 20s, as part of Miles Davis’ group. He’s since been all over the musical map, blending styles and making up new ones, like his latest, soulgrass, in which soul and bluegrass meet in rocky, jazzy places. Evans and his group come to town for an 8 p.m. show at Port City Music Hall (504 Congress St., Portland). Tix: $18-$20 ($30 VIP seating; 18+). 899-4990. portcitymusichall.com.
