The Alan Evans Trio -- filled out by Danny Mayer on guitar and Beau Sasser on organ -- recently recorded and released their debut record, "Drop Hop," on Royal Family Records. For this Live at KDHX session, the trio performed two compositions from that record along with a track recorded under the group's pseudonym Crushed Velvet and the Velveteers. Under the Crushed Velvet moniker, Evans wrote and recorded a record based on the fictitious concept of a lost soundtrack. As the story goes, the film '70s film "The Big One" was never released, and Evans himself recently uncovered its lost soundtrack.

The session begins with "Authoritay," a jaunty, mid-tempo slice of funk with nimble soloing from both Mayer and Sasser. "The Lay Down," from the aforementioned soundtrack, explores spaced out, washed out moods, but contains an unexpected and unhitched crescendo several minutes in. The swell quickly crests, restoring the energy of the jam to its previously subdued space. The final track of the session is "Crooooz," a spiky and shape-shifting escapade with organ out front.
