Podcast with Soulive drummer Alan Evans, who brings his own Alan Evans Trio to Martin’s Downtown on Friday
Extreme bias showing here. I love funky soul/jazz organ trio Soulive. And as a drummer, I’m way into what Alan Evans does with that act. So I was excited to hear that he is bringing his own trio to Martin’s tomorrow night. Sol & Funk Root is opening the show, which made me even happier. Get show details at Top Tickets. So I had to get Alan on the phone.
On this podcast, we discuss the Alan Evans Trio’s brand new CD, “Drop Hop,” about the players who have joined him to create something nastier and stickier than the typical Soulive record and about how Evans put together some of the record’s grooves. Streaming music — “Check Your Lugnuts,” “Rum Runner,” “If You Want My Love (Give It Up)” and “White Room.”
