“…Ross’ precocious creativity, facility, and confidence were downright shocking. His style is so unique and developed that it changed my image of the vibraphone itself,” claims ALL ABOUT JAZZ.
Prolific & Renowned Vibraphonist & Composer JOEL ROSS released his anticipated Blue Note debut album "KingMaker" to eruptive critical acclaim in 2019.
