Album Review

For their third album for Blue Note, Soulive decided to record their winter 2002 tour, attempting to capture the spark that makes them such a popular touring band, and to that extent, they're largely successful. This is a tight unit, consisting of Eric Krasno on guitar, Alan Evans on drums, and brother Neal Evans on Hammond organ and clavinet as well as playing the bass parts on a keyboard or with foot pedals. The tunes are mostly up-tempo, soul-jazz groove jams that leave plenty of space for Krasno and Neal Evans as soloists. The crisp production captures the band nicely, but some of the fadeouts could have been handled a little better. The band is hot, and plays great, but stumbles slightly at the end. Stevie Ray Vaughan's beautiful "Lenny" suffers from an overly long intro and is played such that the melody is subverted and all that remains are the chord changes. "Turn It Out" brings them back to form but degenerates into an audience chant-along that surely should have been edited out. Soulive has all the elements fans are looking for, but a little trimming would have made for a stronger album. [A Japanese version added a bonus track.]

Customer Reviews

the best is live

This was the first album I heard by Soulive and i've been a huge fan ever since. They always record great tracks but it's their live performance that's truely something to be experienced. You can't go wrong with this song list from "El Ron" the song that first hooked me into the group to "Turn It Out" which is just the kind of note these guys end a show off with... high energy and nothing spared.
