“The vibraphonist Joel Ross is already widely known as contemporary jazz’s top prospect. Kingmaker, his major-label debut, out now on Blue Note, shows that he has what it takes to build something vital.”—New York Times
“I never had a doubt that I was going to do music,” says Joel Ross, the most thrilling new vibraphonist in America. The Chicago-born, Brooklyn-based player and composer has performed with historic and seasoned artists—Herbie Hancock, Louis Hayes, Christian McBride, and Stefon Harris—as well as with cutting-edge contemporaries like Ambrose Akinmusire, Gerald Clayton, and Marquis Hill. In 2019, Ross joined the Blue Note Records roster and added his name to an illustrious jazz vibraphone legacy on the label that extends from Milt Jackson and Bobby Hutcherson to Stefon Harris and now Ross. At ArtPower, he will be performing with his newly minted Good Vibes ensemble.
