Soulive

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Soulive is a contemporary band with old-school values. Using the time-honored instrumentation of organ, guitar, and drums made popular during the late-'50s heyday of Jimmy Smith, this feisty trio add some new twists to the mix that bring their sound into the here-and-now. It was a wise move to have the band’s first major-label album be a live recording, for Soulive really comes to life in front of an enthusiastic audience. Always emphasizing the groove, this trio never sacrifice rhythmic thrust and feel for display of chops. Tracks are extended, exhibiting fine playing from guitarist Eric Krasno and keyboardist Neal Evans, but an infectious beat, thanks in large part ...

Always emphasizing the groove, this trio never sacrifice rhythmic thrust and feel for display of chops. Tracks are extended, exhibiting fine playing from guitarist Eric Krasno and keyboardist Neal Evans, but an infectious beat, thanks in large part to drummer Alan Evans, grounds every performance. A jam band with a firm understanding of how the past influences the future, Soulive know how to grab both the head and the feet.
All Music Guide - Sean Westergaard
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.

    I hate my life

    I live such a miserable existence, it makes me nauseous just thinking about it. I spend all day cleaning up other people's crap and taking orders from some rich whore on a power trip, then I go home to my bedroom in my parents' basement and masturbate into a gym sock. That's about the highlight of my day. Then I spend about 6 hours watching crap reality shows on the couch, sipping cola from a Big K 3 liter and rubbing my nuts occassionally and sniffing my hands. Then, after a whole week of enduring this slow torture, I get to have 2 days off where the only time I leave the house is to go by some Nutty Bars or to pick up a porno mag. If it weren't for this Soulive cd, I wouldn't have any reason to be here. I hope that it's as good as the last couple.
