BILL EVANS INTERVIEW ÜBER DIESES KONZERT UND SEINER NEUEN CD:
"- The band is on tour. How is the feedback?
The feedback is tremendous.We have people of all ages , from 20 to 80 really enjoying listening to what we do. When there is a great feeling coming from the stage , the audience can feel it. We groove hard with vocals, instrumentals, etc with a sound unique to our band only. The banjo, guitar and saxophone along with the vocals is an organic way to play music. The key thing is, the musicians have to be able to play at the highest level. I have no boundaries. Music is music…I don't like categories.
- How would you discribe the style of Bill Evans Soulgrass?
It is blend of my taste in american styles. jazz, soul, rock with touches of the bluegrass sound using the banjo. But Ryan Cavanaugh plays the banjo like a guitar player on steroids. He is very unique.
- What is special about a show of Bill Evans Soulgrass? Why should the
audience come and see the show? What do they have to expect?
- They will be blown away by how great Josh Dion, our drummer plays and sings, and by the way the saxophone blends in with the colors of the banjo and guitar. They will be able to feel this band not only musically but emotionally. Miles Davis always told me to be true to my inspirations and that is what I have always done from the very beginning.
People will see something they will be talking about for some time to come.
We always here: " wow, I didn't know what to expect . I really loved the experience ! "
- What are you looking forward to?
I’m looking forward to working as much with the band as possible. We play worldwide and really love what we do. We are releasing our " Live in Moscow " CD this tour for a limited release , only offered on this tour. It is a special cd we did in russia last year.“
