Day 60: Black Music Month - Adriana Evans (Redux)
There’s something about Adriana Evans. Listen to any of her five studio albums and you will be spellbound by her rich musical landscape. Her music is an intoxicating mix of classic soul, funk, hip-hop, jazz, rock, Afro-Cuban and Brazilian rhythms. Her voice—an instrument that is reminiscent of the preeminent jazz vocalists of our time—is the soulful, sweet, sublime element that brings everything together. Evans made her self-titled debut album (featuring the singles “Seein’ Is Believing” and “Love Is All Around”) back in 1997 with music that was then being dubbed “neo classic soul.” But even then, it was clear that there was so much more to Evans and her music than that. Her most recent album was 2010’s “Walking With The Night.” If you haven’t already, give Evans music a spin. It won’t be long before you can’t get her hypnotic music out of your mind.
