One of the hottest young names in soul and jazz, American singer and drummer, Ross’s music shimmers between jazz, R&B, soul, gospel and blues. Think of a mix of Donny Hathaway and Elvin Jones. Hard to grasp! One minute you’re enjoying his super-soulful voice, gospel inflections and infectious love of melody; the next you’re digging his grooving, swinging drumming with his band of young jazz turks. He’s won the Thelonious Monk Competition as a drummer; Grammy Awards; and Downbeat’s Award for rising star in male jazz singers. A phenomenon.
