Karl Evangelista's Song & Dance Trio is a longstanding collaboration with baritone saxophonist Cory Wright and drummer Jordan Glenn, a functional jazz trio that explores the nexus between free improvisation, rock elements, and noise music. The Song & Dance Trio synthesizes its influences into songs that are unique, surprising, and yes--fun and danceable.Tiny Mix Tapes calls Evangelista's music "essential current and future listening," and fans of Canterbury prog rock, 60's Impulse! records, and Bay Area pop will find plenty to enjoy in Song & Dance's special blend.
