To-Be-Dated: These two artists stand over a cauldron and decide to mix in the potions of pop and jazz to bring forth a spectacular piece of music never before heard. With this goal in mind, Evan Main decided to take on Gio Nation’s “You Know What I’m Talking About” in a stunning new interpretation.
When Evan was approached for this project Gio was surprised by his eager disposition & willingness to be involved. Many musicians feel that collaborations between different genres are very constraining as they struggle to put their own spin on it. For true artists, every piece they create must have originality in it. For Evan, a partnership would not only be an outlet for self expression but an opportunity to work with material that truly resonated with him.“I think this song is worth listening to because Gio and I legitimately put ourselves into it, as musicians and as artists. We committed to it, Gio had a concrete vision and a powerful vision when he first wrote and recorded this song, and I developed my own personal vision for how I could play it when presented with the opportunity to do so.” ~said Evan Main on why people should listen to his and Gio Nation’s work.

It has been seen many times throughout history that you need to shake things up and mess around to create something new. But creating jazz improv isn’t easy. Anyone can crudely mash together the different genres, but what determines the artist’s mettle is to strike a balance that would bring out only the best. There must be individuality, harmony, and resonance; A soulless cash grab of a collab will never hold the power of moving others.
When asked about his love for jazz music, Evan replied, “I find a tremendous amount of expressive potential in jazz improv. The more time I put into it, on perfecting my craft, practicing, working at it, listening to great music and internalizing it, the more tools I have at my disposal to express myself at a high level and really articulate meaningful ideas musically. Like I said, I spend a lot of time working on this. So that’s always what I’ve loved most about it.”
Evan Main and Gio Nation did this collaboration in May 2021. They came together to express their individuality and soul as artists to create music that would move people.
