Two brilliant musicians, Robben Ford and Bill Evans just joined forces again!
Recently they recorded their first collaborative CD "Sun Room", on which you can hear their unique approach to making music. Bill and Robben both reach out and explore all kinds of contemporary music (Blues, Soul, Jazz) while at the same time not forgetting their roots in Jazz and pushing the boundaries of the genre in new progressive ways.
In 2020 Robben and Bill released a new record followed by extensive (delayed!) touring through Europe.
ABOUT BILL EVANS
Heralded as a renaissance man of music, Grammy nominated saxophonist Bill Evans has explored a variety of musical settings that go well beyond the confines of traditional jazz. His early collaborations with Miles Davis and John McLaughlin launched two decades of musical exploration, culminating in Soulgrass, a powerful and eclectic blend of quintessential American styles.
ABOUT ROBBEN FORD
Robben Ford, one of the premiere electric guitarists and vocalists today, is known for his passionate blues playing and his ability to diversify into a variety of musical settings. A four time Grammy nominee, Robben has played with an elite blend of musicians, such as Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis, George Harrison and Phil Lesh, to name a few.
Both are known for consistently pushing the envelope and now team up together with an all star lineup for a seamless and bold new interpretation of blues, jazz, and rock. This one of a kind collaboration has set the stage for an intense and unforgettable musical experience.
