Bill Evans Soulgrass Returns to Russia

Filmmaker Christoph Felder, from Koln, Germany is going to accompany Bill Evans Soulgrass on their 10 city tour of Russia, that ends with a concert at the Moscow Philharmonic followed by a private concert for dignitaries from both countries at the Spaso House, which is The US ambassadors residence in Moscow.

Bill Evans Soulgrass current release was recorded live in Moscow in the fall of 2013.

Evans says “I love the playing for the Russian people. They love music and life in general. Music transcends religion and politics, so we plan on showing people in Russia how happy we are to play for them”.

Going with Soulgrass on this trip is Murali Coryell and Mitch Stein on guitars, Dave Anderson on bass, Joel Rosenblatt on drums. “Murali is a tremendous blues singer. We are happy to have him aboard.”

Here’s the Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter song “Deal”, as performed by Phil Lesh and Friends, along w/ a sax player you might recognize :) The “Friends” that Phil put together for this 4 night run were: Jackie Greene, John Kadlecik, Marco Benevento and Joe Russo. I think it’s safe to say we all had a blast.

-hat tip to Scott for capturing this video

Free Track: Download Bill Evans Soulgrass – “Them Changes”

Here’s a rough (unmastered) track from the upcoming “Live in Moscow” album. It was recorded at the Spaso House in Moscow, RU, on 11/14/13. I’ll be releasing the entire, mastered and finished album online later this year, right here on my website.

We were on a long tour in Europe and this show is special because we had just completed a state department tour of Russia, getting a chance to really meet the people, who were absolutely fantastic. So this song is dedicated to the music fans in Russia who helped to support us!

Without further ado – here’s the track: Bill Evans Soulgrass – Them Changes (Advanced Demo Mix). Enjoy!
