ALAN EVANS TRIO SET TO RELEASE FOLLOW UP
ALBUM MERKABA ON TUESDAY, MARCH 19, 2013
Alan Evans Trio's much-anticipated follow-up album, Merkaba (Royal Family Records), hits Earth on Tuesday, March 19, 2013, and will be available on CD, vinyl, and digital in select retail outlets around the globe, and neighboring solar systems. Stay tuned for pre-sale packages to be announced in February.
The perfect road trip album for the everyday space traveler, Merkaba takes listeners on a cosmic funk adventure. With spacey Hammond organ overlays and celestial chord progressions provided by Beau Sasser (Melvin Sparks Band, Akashic Record), zero-gravity guitar riffs by Danny Mayer (On the Spot Trio) and the rocket powered beats of legendary drummer Alan Evans (Soulive), the Alan Evans Trio follow up album to the critically-acclaimed Drop Hop, invites listeners to experience an interstellar musical voyage as deep as space itself.
Produced, recorded, and mixed by the legendary drummer of Soulive, Alan Evans also contributed musically to nearly every instrument on the album. Additionally, Merkaba features special guest traveler and luminary hip hop guitarist, Mike Feingold (Jay-Z, Erykah Badu), on banjo, guitar, and keyboard.
