to write a review


Nearly 40 years after taking us to “Funkytown” as keyboardist and musical director of Lipps, Inc., Minneapolis-based keyboardist/composer Ivan Rafowitz – professionally known by his moniker E-Von - keeps the soulful and tasty jazz-funk flowing on his new self-titled album, the follow up to his 2014 DUALLY NOTED. His multi-faceted stylistic journey transports the listener from bold, in your face horn-drenched jams, to sensual Brazilian vibes and deeper, introspective ballads. His featured saxman, popular Twin Cities performer, Kenni Holman, has recorded with Prince. Also on the project, E-Von's son, rising star, progressive music guitarist, Adam Rafowitz... whom George Benson refers to as making "fresh, energetic and exciting music worthy of your ears"! If you like Brian Culbertson and Jeff Lorber, you’ll love E-Von!
