Joel Ross is refining an expression that’s true to his sound and his generation. The vibraphonist- composer regularly tops DownBeat Critics Poll and in 2017, he became one of the youngest artists to receive a coveted Residency Commission from The Jazz Gallery. Following critically-acclaimed debut KingMaker (Blue Note, 2019), Ross issues sophomore release Who Are You? (Blue Note, 2020), the culmination of a year-long exercise in risk-taking alongside members of his band Good Vibes: Jeremy Corren, Immanuel Wilkins, Kanoa Mendenhall and Jeremy Dutton.
“Ross’ playing erupts through the layers of lush arrangements like consistent currents of electricity, high-powered and full of luminous energy”
