Ex-member of fusion pioneers Yellowjackets, Robben Ford is admired for his solo works but also known for his collaborations with giants of music like Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, George Harrison and many others. Bill Evans is an American saxophone player – not to be confused with the legendary piano player of the same name – who has played, toured and recorded with artists such as Herbie Hancock, Willie Nelson, Mick Jagger and the Allman Brothers Band. Ford and Evans have often shared the stage and recorded together over the years and so it’s no surprise that they are joining forces again.

Accompanied by a first-class rhythm section: Keith Carlock (drums) and James Genus (bass), they have made a formidable recording. Bill Evans enthuses about the process: “Rarely, but every now and then, like-minded musicians get together to create something that transcends musical boundaries yet can reach a wider audience. To me, the music we created on The Sun Room is timeless. I love blues, jazz, soul, funk and this CD has all of it, performed at the highest level. The vibe was so great during this recording process that it was just a joy to be a part of.” And Ford: “Making this recording, playing with these guys, has been one of my favorite experiences in a long, musical life. Having worked with many musicians in many different configurations and styles, I can say freely that this group of players has a great chemistry and ability to navigate uncharted waters, which is what allows for real improvisation.”

Enough said – we think that speaks for itself!
