Hope everyone’s enjoying Popular Songs, especially–for the purposes of this post, at least–the amazing string arrangements on “Here to Fall” and “If It’s True” by  Mr. Richard Evans.


For anyone who wants to know more about Richard Evans, let me point you to the always incredible Funky 16 Corners blog.  Start here, but don’t stop until you’ve moseyed through the four pages of posts you find if you run a search.

If you don’t happen to own a computer, the March 2009 issue of Wax Poetics included a great interview, and the current Signal to Noise, amidst a mind-boggling 18 pages on Marshall Allen, has a photo of Richard playing bass at a 1998 Chicago tribute to Sun Ra.
