Travel Tip: Jazz in United States
Robben Ford



Robben Ford
UNITED STATES
OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA  •  Yoshi's Jazz Club and Japanese Restaurant  •  Ongoing
 
 
A four-time Grammy nominee, he has played with artists as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Witherspoon, Miles Davis, George Harrison, Phil Lesh, Bonnie Raitt, Claus Ogerman, Michael McDonald, and many, many others.

On his interest in jazz, Ford says, I fell in love with the sax playing of Paul Desmond and The Dave Brubeck Quartet, and before long found Ornette Coleman, Archie Shepp, Yusaf Lateef, Roland Kirk, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, and of course, Miles Davis. These influences have stayed with Ford, playing a large part in his particular blend of jazz and blues that define him as a guitarist and allow him to play in a wide variety of settings.

Robben currently lives in Ojai, California with his wife Anne, with whom he collaborates with on various musical projects including her recent CD Weill", which Robben produced on their own Illyria label.
