FUNK N ROLL
Helming a residency in a bowling alley is a daunting task, unless youre Homer Simpson, but Soulive are the musical equivalent of two-tone shoes: quirky, dramatic, and probably soon appropriated by Marc Jacobs and marked up 400 percent. The NY jazz-funk organ trio has recorded with Talib Kweli and Dave Matthews, shared a stage with the Rolling Stones and Stevie Wonder, and released more than a dozen studio and live albums; given that Alan Evans (drums), Neal Evans (Hammond B-3 organ), and Eric Krasno (guitar) formed the group a decade ago, when they were all under 25, their chops are even more remarkable. Yell out requests from debut Turn It Out (2000) as you gutter-ball toward glory; the hip-hop-inspired percussion was some of the decades best. Todays the mere third date of their 10-day stint.
