A brand new single from the Alan Evans Trio aka Ae3, the band of Alan Evans, multi-instrumentalist and co-founder of acclaimed funk outfit Soulive.
“Elephant Head” is the first single and titletrack of the forthcoming new album by Alan Evans Trio. It’s a cinematic funk track with an infectious hook, a driving groove, melodic virtuoso guitar and soaring keyboards.
The Alan Evans Trio is a power soul organ trio providing hard-driving, funky grooves with deep, funky melodies and powerful, rhythmic counterplay. Ae3 opens a window into another side – an emotional introspection, as dark as it is powerful. Their passionate progressions emanate an electrified, smoky, 70s-era CTI Records zeitgeist. Mention the name Alan Evans to a room full of music lovers, and you will get a consensus nod at one of the most celebrated and tenacious drummers in the jazz, funk, and soul scene. A producer, recording engineer, guitarist, percussionist, vocalist and writer, Alan’s repertoire of skills have been perfected with more than a decade of dedication.
