Bill Evans' Soulgrass featuring Jake Cinninger, Kris Myers, and Joel Cummins of Umphrey's McGee

Bill Evans Soulgrass performs in Europe in 2011

  • Bill Evans is: a genre-bending, Grammy-winning saxophonist who's worked with everyone from Miles Davis to Bela Fleck
  • Other illustrious past collaborators: Herbie Hancock, Mick Jagger, John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Steps Ahead
  • Amazing feat of productivity: finding time to release 19 albums and counting of solo material
  • Soulgrass is: "jazz, funk, and bluegrass . . . a seamless and wholly unique hybrid of quintessentially American styles," according to Bill Evans' website
  • The other guys: keyboardist Joel Cummins, guitarist Jake Cinninger, and drummer Kris Myers
  • What they're known for: playing in Umphrey's McGee, a jam band so popular it put peanut-butter bands out of business entirely
  • What audiences can expect from Soulgrass, if a 2009 JazzTimes review is any indication: "an invigorating, high-energy set that expertly incorporated intricate, blazing unison lines on the heads and improvisational abandon in the solo sections"
