This attitude of cheerful optimism, of seeing everything in an attractive, pleasant light, has always been with us, while the expression itself goes back to at least 1861, when it is first recorded in 'Tom Brown at Oxford': 'Oxford was a sort of Utopia to the Captain.He continued to behold towers, and quadrangles, and chapels, through rose-colored glasses." From the "Encyclopedia of Word and Phrase Origins" by Robert Hendrickson (Facts on File, New York, 1997)

Brooklyn, NY -- Soulive's spring tour in support of their ninth studio album, Rubber Soulive, is in full swing. The cross-country jaunt stops at Wonder Ballroom in Portland, OR on Tuesday, May 17.

The Brooklyn-based soul-funk trio recently released Rubber Soulive, a tribute to The Beatles, which went to no. 1 on the iTunes jazz chart. The 11-track collection features Soulive's inimitable interpretations of Fab Four classics like "In My Life," "Eleanor Rigby" and "I Want You (She's So Heavy)." The band cut the album at their recording facility, Playonbrother Studios, and released the effort through their own label, Royal Family Records. After a series of albums on major labels that experimented with guest vocalists, DJs and horn sections, Rubber Soulive signals a return to the band's roots with founding members Eric Krasno, Neal Evans and Alan Evans front and center and all operations under their own roof.

In other Soulive news, the band kicked-off 2011 with a ten-night stand at Brooklyn Bowl in March dubbed Bowlive. The second annual residency found the band playing host to the likes of special guests including Questlove, John Scofield, Robert Randolph, Bernie Worrell, Van Hunt, Marco Benevento and Corey Glover among numerous others. The two week run coincided with the release of the previous year's highlights on a DVD entitled Bowlive: Live At Brooklyn Bowl.
