Rob Crozier Jazz Ensemble
Modern Jazz with World music elements.
The Rob Crozier Jazz Ensemble is a jazz ensemble based in Ann Arbor focused on presenting the work of the singing bassist/composer Rob Crozier. After great reception at the 2018 Elkhart Jazz Festival (IN) and West Michigan Wine and Jazz Festival this fine group has continued to wow audiences with feature performances at the Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe in Grosse Pointe and at their regular engagements. Mr. Crozier is supporting his latest release called “Ocean Blue” which was released in late 2018, and his debut release as a leader “Tall Trees” released in 2016. As a listener you can expect a broad variety of music ranging from contemporary swing to soulful sounds and tribal rhythms. The group’s musical tribute to Detroit’s own legendary jazzman, Yusef Lateef, will feature the use of a unique instrument called the didgeridoo. Join the group for a fiery mix of crossover jazz, swing and more!
The ensemble includes bass, drums, African thumb piano, hand drumming, flute, piano and keyboard, sax, bass clarinet, spoken word and a female vocalist. Join this fine regional talent for a show not to be missed!
