Event description

Description

Willis Sound presents a special live, studio concert with Ypsilanti's own award-winning composer/vocalist Estar Cohen and renowed Chicago-based pianist Rob Clearfield. Rob is currently on tour playing selections from his new solo album, and will start the night off with an intimate solo set. He will then join Estar's sextet featuring Dan Palmer - guitar, Patrick Booth - saxophone, Travis Aukerman - drums, and bassist Ben Rolston who will be joining from NYC. Doors will open at 8pm. **We ask that tickets be purchased in advance to ensure seating. BYOB.

Called “...one of [Chicago’s] most enjoyably unpredictable players” by Neil Tesser, Clearfield has taken part in a number of highly creative and genre-bending releases since his emergence on the scene over a decade ago. He has worked with renowned musicians including Fareed Haque, Matt Ulery, Marquis Hill, Makaya McCraven, Greg Ward, Howard Levy, Patricia Barber, Chris Siebold, Melvin Butler, and Ernest Dawkins, among others. His new solo release, Wherever You’re Starting From, represents a new level of vulnerability and exposure, that until now, he had not yet experienced with any past venture.
