Recent Press for the Rob Crozier 5tet!
"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."

"Rob is an incredible musician. We've seen him perform solo and with small jazz combos. The musicianship is always excellent and wows the crowd. He can bring any type of show and brings his "A game." His relationship with so many different musicians ensures that when he performs for you, it's a home run."
Rob Crozier is a professional musician, educator, composer/arranger and entrepreneur living in the Southeastern Michigan area. Mr. Crozier holds a BFA for Jazz and Contemporary Improvisation in Double Bass from University of Michigan.
Crozier says, “music is freedom.” On his latest release, "Tall Trees," he stretches his music to explore the world of sound adding color, adventure, and newness through re-imagining standards, the use of electronics, and ethnic instruments.
His work with the Celtic fusion band Nessa can be heard on both of their CDs and the latest single "The Grey Selkie." Rob's business, Eventjazz, provides live music to weddings and parties throughout Southeastern Michigan.
"Rob Crozier's bass playing brings a level of professionalism and finesse unmatched by most players today. Rob didn't just simply play on my tracks; he infused them with both passion and style. Rob Crozier is a top-of-the-line Grade A musician in every possible sense!"
Steve Scott (DMA Award Winner 2014)
