Yve Evans & Co.: The Gospel According To Yve

A warm, R&B-influenced jazz singer/pianist with an impressive range and a great sense of humor, the L.A.-based Yve Evans hasn’t yet gotten the commercial break she deserves but continues to put out highly enjoyable CDs. Gospel and the Afro American church experience has clearly had a strong impact on her musically, and she celebrates that inspiration with her first gospel-oriented release The Gospel According To Yve. From “Wade In The Water” and “Sweet By And By” to “This Little Light Of Mine” and “Have A Little Talk With Jesus,” Evans shows a lot of enthusiasm and gives the impression that this was a CD she had been anxious to record for some time. Though primarily a gospel album, The Gospel According To Yve isn’t without jazz elements any more than Evans’ “secular” jazz releases are without gospel influence.

Hopefully, a sizable label will sign Evans at some point. (Available from Note worthy Music, P.O. Box 3957, Los Angeles, CA 90051-1957).
