Evoke Ensemble

Evoke Ensemble performing "Little Wing" at Riverwalk Cafe 11.19.15

The music of the Evoke Ensemble is an intriguing composite of bass guitarist and composer, Tim Paul Weiner’s interest in the emotive element of film music, combined with the visceral, exploratory funk, Cellar-Door era of Miles Davis, and the pastoral lyricism of his Mid-Western heritage. It’s steeped in groove and improvisation, inspired by jazz, influenced by film.
