The Soulful Strings were really just a studio side project of the Chicago soul arranger Richard Evans. Bassist, Richard Evans had gained notoriety as a producer and arranger for Cadet Records during the 1960s and 70s. Working primarily within the confines of soul and jazz, Evans spent time working with artists like Sun-Ra, Marlena Shaw, Dorothy Ashby, Ramsey Lewis, Jack McDuff, Richard Holmes, and Kenny Burrell. He had a knack for creating expansive, string laden, musical tableaux, that always bore his unique stamp. As though that sort of resume were not enough, Evans truly made his name and reputation with a venture called the Soulful Strings. Between the years of 1966 and 1971, Evans worked with several musicians from the Cadet Records house band to record six LP’s. The members of the band included Charles Stepney, Bobby Christian, Billy Wooten, Phil Upchurch, Lennie Druss, and Cleveland Eaton. The Soulful Strings series could easily come off as a cheap, easy listening affair fit for the bargain bins of your local record store, but under Evans arrangements that was never going to happen. Employing a repertoire composed almost entirely of covers, Evans and company created a unique sound, combining a sharp, soulful rhythm section with a lush string backing. Where others had lay the strings docile and brooding in the background, Evans pushed them to the front, assuming an attitude previously reserved only for the hulking funk of bass and rhythm guitar. It was this crucial element that made the Soulful Strings sound, so successful. This musical evolution allowed musical tastes to refine and a bunch of rising arrangers and musicians to quietly borrow his sensibilities for the stomping thump of Blaxploitation movie scores.
