Celebrate Spring With Fresh Sounds From Rob Crozier's '5tet' 5:01 Jazz Show

One of the joys of presenting 5:01 Jazz Shows is featuring beloved favorites such as Ron Brooks, Ramona Collins and Paul Finkbeiner. Another pleasure is to introduce new names deserving attention. In bassist Rob Crozier and his 5tet, we offer a band of veterans and fresh faces with a novel approach to improvisation. Bassist Rob Crozier (who also doubles on didgeridoo!), saxophonist Pete Kahn, guitarist Rodney Rich, pianist Brian Brill and drummer Sam Genson will celebrate Rob’s new CD Tall Trees at WEMU’s next free Sesi Motors 5:01 Jazz Show on Friday, April 7th. Rush Street Nightclub, 314 South Main Street in Ann Arbor throws the doors open early for our pop-up jazz club starting at 5:01 PM sharp.
