After completing a masters degree in music
performance and exploring the territories of Bach, Brahms, Chopin et al,
Ross turned his full attention to early jazz and stride piano, for which
he's had a keen interest since his high school days.
A Graduate of Bowling Green State University in
Ohio, Ross developed a career as a teacher and performer of early jazz in
Europe, Canada and the U.S.
Since settling in the Boston area in 1987 he has
delighted audiences with his joyous breed of music making and gained
recognition for his ability to play stride piano with the vigor and
spontaneity that marked its creation. In the meantime he has released a
solo piano recording and has performed with many of New England's
pre-eminent traditional jazz bands.
He is a regular member of The
Blue Horizon Jazz Band, John Clark's Wolverine Jazz Band, Back Bay
Ramblers, and more recently, Swing Times Five. He currently teaches at the All Newton Music School in Newton
Massachusetts and performs frequently throughout the New England area.
