This week on a snowy Food Talk with Michael Colameco, host Mike Colameco is talking music with friend Bill Evans. Bill is a world-class, Grammy Award winning saxophonist and producer who made his debut on the international music scene in the 1980’s, at the tender age of 21, with Miles Davis – yes, the Miles Davis. Bill has been prolific in the studio, recording 19 solo albums to date. One evening you’ll see him walk on stage as a guest with the Allman Brothers. The next, rock out with Warren Haynes & Gov’t Mule. Then co-lead a European tour with Robben Ford or Randy Brecker. After that, he’ll jam with Medeski Martin and Wood, or trade solos with Jake Cinninger while sitting in with jam-band favorites Umphrey’s McGee. Tune in as Mike chats with this renaissance man who has seamlessly walked from stage to stage to right here on Heritage Radio Network.
“It’s kind of a progressive, rock, jazz sort of band now. It’s morphed into a very very cool sound. I’m very excited about it.”
“You speak with your instrument! When you come from jazz, you can say a lot with your instrument.”
—Bill Evans on Food Talk
