Robben Ford & Bill Evans
WITH WOLFGANG HAFFNER & GARY GRAINGER
Among the many things they have in common, guitarist Robben Ford and saxophonist Bill Evans both played with Miles Davis. For Ford, it even happened on stage at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1986. Listening to the duo’s 2019 album The Sun Room, it naturally becomes clear that they share much more than this illustrious line on their CVs. First and foremost, the same love for uninhibited jazz, flirting with blues, soul and rock. Among the most sought-after musicians of their generation, Robben Ford and Bill Evans have played with countless artists, most notably Joni Mitchell, John Scofield and Bob Dylan for Robben Ford and Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin and Mick Jagger for Bill Evans.
