Fresh off his work with pianist Aaron Parks in our Mentorship Series, vibraphonist Joel Ross returns to The Jazz Gallery this Saturday for two sets with an expanded version of his Good Vibes band. During his mini tour with Parks, Ross more than held his own and received sparkling praise from All About Jazz, who reviewed the group’s concert in Philadelphia.
On Saturday, Ross will convene a band made up of both his talented peers like drummer Jeremy Dutton, and established veterans like saxophonist Dayna Stephens and pianist Fabian Almazan. If Ross’s performances with Parks are any indication, this cross-generational collaboration will feature a glove-like fit.
Joel Ross Good Vibes performs at The Jazz Gallery on Saturday, July 9th, 2016. The group features Mr. Ross on vibraphone, Philip Dizack on trumpet, Immanuel Wilkins on alto saxophone, Dayna Stephens on tenor saxophone, Fabian Almazan on piano, Ben Tiberio on bass, and Jeremy Dutton on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $22 general admission ($12 for members). FREE for SummerPass holders. Purchase tickets here.
