Joel Ross

Idioma disponible: inglés
The Chicago-born, Brooklyn-based vibraphonist Joel Ross is a sophisticated jazz performer with a sound steeped in the post-bop tradition. A protégé of Stefon Harris, Ross initially gained attention as a sideman with Marquis Hill and Makaya McCraven before releasing his 2019 debut Blue Note album, Kingmaker. Along with his work as a member of Walter Smith III and Matthew Stevens' In Common band, he has continued to deliver ever more ambitious albums, including 2020's Who Are You? and 2022's The Parable of the Poet. Born in 1996, Ross grew up in Chicago's South Side with parents who worked as police officers. A twin, he and his sibling started playing drums at age three, and by elementary school were regularly playing at church, where their father also worked as the choir director. As a teenager, he switched to the vibraphone after joining the All City concert and jazz bands. More opportunities followed including playing with groups at the Jazz Institute of Chicago and eventually enrolling at the Chicago High School for the Arts. Via the school's partnership with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, Ross engaged with a bevy of performers including Herbie Hancock, Gerald Clayton, and Stefon Harris; the latter urged him to audition for his Brubeck Institute Jazz Quintet at California's University of the Pacific. Ross won the audition and spent two years working with Harris and developing his skills. The vibraphonist ultimately transferred to the New School, where he formed his own Good Vibes ensemble and finished out his degree. In 2016, he took first place at the BIAMP PDX Jazz Festival "Jazz Forward" Competition. Based in Brooklyn, Ross has played with such luminaries as Makaya McCraven, Peter Evans, and Marquis Hill. In 2018, he joined Walter Smith III and Matthew Stevens for the album In Common. A year later, he cracked the Top Ten of the Billboard Jazz Albums chart with his debut record as a leader, Kingmaker, on Blue Note. Work followed with Melissa Aldana, Rob Mazurek, Jason Palmer, and others. In 2020, he returned with his sophomore Blue Note album, Who Are You?, which featured contributions by harpist Brandee Younger and saxophonist Immanuel Wilkins, among others. After returning to his work with Smith and Stevens for 2022's In Common III, Ross delivered his own album-length suite, The Parable of the Poet.
