Since the release in 1997 of her self-titled debut Adriana Evans has resolutely steered her own course in making music, continuing to work largely with producer Jonathan `Dred' Scott, and producing music quite separate and distinct from that usually awarded the apellation `R&B' or `Urban', or even `Neo-Soul'(a long jettisoned name). If your idea of soul music (to use an often forgotten and abused term) is ear crushing beats and simplistic melodies accompanied by nihilistic rap this album isn't for you. But if you are looking for something less contrived and simpler, where the purity and tone of voice matters, read on.

The tone of the album is set by the gentle opener `Waiting', where Evans' voice clearly moves over a simple, grooving track featuring trumpet, guitar and flugal horn. Fans of her first album will instantly recognise the familiarity of the production sound: simple, spare and incredibly seductive. This continues with `Suddenly', where the voice effortlessly glides over a simple, aching lyric of regret. Other highlights include `Love Me On The One', where the chorus features a beautiful backing counter melody, and the slightly up-tempo `Surrender', which offers a number of interesting possibilities as a future single.

`Astral Projection' is a short and very pretty instrumental, very much in keeping with the album, and `Sooner Or Later' is an old fashioned love song. `Weatherman' (featuring in a 12" mix too) will appeal particularly to fans of Raphael Saadiq's `The Way I See It' project. Indeed listening through the album one is clearly struck by the range of musical references , and all `worn lightly' with little apparent self-regard and stylistic bombast.

This is a fantastic album, Adriana has an amazing voice, and this is backed up with real instruments!!
Weatherman, which is a single is a classic, a real souldance track, "Let you get away" has a rare groove feel to it, and is my favourite track, this is setting the benchmark for soul albums for this decade, its simply that good!!1

Her 1997 album was excellent, i really liked El Camino, and this, her latest album is fantastic. It takes alot for me to go to the bother of writing a review, but this album, for me, sets the standard for other soul albums in 2010 ... after what i thought was a fairly mediocre 2009 for good quality throughout LPs. Adriana is sounding great, is backed by some beautiful grooves, blending contemporary soul, with what is essentially a bit of bossa nova. Optimo! If you like good soul, buy without hesitation ... and while I'm at it .. best tune for me from 2009 was All Matter by Robert Glasper and Bilal ...

After a break of 7 years between her first and second albums, Adriana Evans has started to release them more regularly. "Walking With The Night" is her fourth album and third in the last 6 years. This does affect the quality at all and this is another fine collection of soulful tunes. The album flows really well and is filled with mellow smooth jazz.

"Waiting" and "Suddenly" are examples of this and have a very cool sophisticated vibe. "Midnight" is quite funky and uses a guitar sample from the intro "Walking In The Sun" from her album "Nomadic" released in 2004. "Love Me On The One" has a powerful beat and is a great slice of pure funk and soul. "Never Thought" is another addictive funky track and "Surrender" is very groovy, reminding me of earlier work by En Vogue. All of these songs have such a happy and effortless sound to them. "Let You Get Away" is a catchy soulful track and "Sooner Or Later" is a soothingly sleepy jazz tinged ballad. "Walking With The Night" is another pleasant soulful tune and "Weatherman" is a very happy and infectious Motown influenced R&B song. "Set In Stone" is very sweet and has jazz influences. An extended version of "Weatherman" completes the album.

My only slight criticism is that the album does not possess any outstanding tracks and the melodies are generally quite simple and a little repetitive. This is very apparent on "Astral Projection" and "El Sol" which are a little bland in comparison to the other songs. But this does not take away the fact that most of the songs are very good and blend well together on "Walking With The Night", creating another solid effort from Adriana.
