Neal Evans
Neal received his formal training from Jaki Byard at the Manhattan School of Music. As a member and co-founder of SOULIVE, he has reinvented the B-3 organ, fusing jazz with bumping hip hop and soulful R&B. The independence between his hands is jaw dropping: the left freaking bass lines; the right blazing solos. At first, you're looking for the bass player, but when you realize what's happening you're left dumbfounded.
 
But Neal is a lot more than a riveting performer. Originally a drummer (like his bro and dad), Neal's concept of rhythm is impeccable. Combined with an ear for complex harmony and soulful melodies, Neal is destined to be one of the great modern composers of our time.
