    Summer is the season when the rest of America gets to experience the easy vibe that folks from L.A. call their own year round. Singer Adriana Evans, producer Dred Scott and arranger/woodwind player Rastine Calhoun III have assembled an album of tunes that groove like a sunny L.A. afternoon. Despite the subtle presence of some light hip-hop grooves and programming, Evans' debut relies more on live performances and '70s soul orchestrations, including horns, strings, orchestra bells, vibes, and even an oboe solo ("Lookin' For Your Love"). With a sweet and soulful voice, Adriana delivers the message that a world looked at with love can be an inspiring place.

  • Critic Reviews
    JazzTimes (9/97, p.65) - "...a breezy, buoyant trip that revisits...the sounds of soul's not so distant past. Evan's attention to phrasing and timing separates her from the run of the mill hip-hop soulster....a well thought-out first effort for this rising vocal star."
    The Source (4/97, p.106) - "...a genuine vocalist with beautiful range....she even writes all of her own material..."
