Alan Evans Trio - Drop Hop - out on Royal Family Records

Soulive's drummer Alan Evans is back in the groove with a trio formation. If you're into Booker T. and the MG's, Medeski Martin & Wood, The City Champs, Will Bernard Trio, The Meters and every good organ trio, Drop Hop is a must-have and a future classic. Loaded with instantly catchy tunes, it reveals the obvious talents of Alan Evans' longtime friends: heavy Hammond lines of Beau Sasser (a true revelation on B3 - at least for us) and superb Danny Mayer's Grant-Greenish guitar riffs. We love the rough and dirty sound of this release, one of the Spring's grooviest soul-funkwise platter, along with the new Sugarman 3 and the terrific Wil Blades/Billy Martin duo's album (Shimmy).
