New Album – The Sun Room

I’m very pleased to announce the release of my latest project, this time with Robben Ford.  Robben and I wrote some new music for this special recording.  This project titled “The Sun Room” is very earthy and melodic. It contains influences of  Blues, Jazz, Roots & Americana.  We just finished the live recording last month at the House of Blues recording studio, in Nashville TN.  “The Sun Room” features Keith Carlock on drums and James Genus on bass.

I am celebrating my 30th anniversary of playing the Blue Note Jazz Clubs in Japan with this same group – The “Bill Evans Super Group with special guest Robben Ford featuring Keith Carlock and James Genus”. We are debuting “The Sun Room” with a limited pre-release with a special cover at the Tokyo Blue Note March 24-27 and March 28th at the Blue Note in Nagoya Japan.  The worldwide release, which will have a different cover, will be released later this spring.

I started playing the Blue Notes in Japan in 1989 with my group, which at the time featured Dennis Chambers, Darryl Jones, Chuck Loeb, and Jim Beard.   We recorded a live album on my first visit back then called “Bill Evans – Let the Juice Loose, live at the Blue Note Tokyo”
