Mark Gross

Mark Gross swings and sings with soul and rhythm along today's jazz vanguard. He constantly pushes the music forward, while staying true to the elements of the classic sound. Mark Gross has recorded on over 80 notable jazz recording, including 2 GRAMMY AWARD winning projects by the Dave Holland Big Band - 'What Goes Around' on ECM Records, and 'Overtime' on Dare 2 Records. Mark’s recordings 'Preach Daddy' on King Records and 'Riddle of the Sphinx' on J Curve Record and 'Blackside' on Jazz Legacy Productions have all received rave reviews.”

“As record concepts go, 'Riddle of the Sphinx' is one of the most clever to come down the pike...Mark Gross is a sax man deserving wider attention who is blessed with a rich, pure tone...Clearly one of the orders of the day for jazz album projects is the conceptual approach....he has successfully plotted and delivered this course, arriving at a package that is fresh, original, and served up by a cohesive band of fine players. Could we ask for anything more?” Willard Jenkins-regular contributor to Jazz Times, Downbeat, and Jazz Report Magazine

“Gross is a new and powerful alto sax player who is a Cannonball type player. As you may presume ... funky is his flavor. He...shows his modern modality which is reflected in his sound.” Takao Ogawa-Swing Journal, Japan

Gross recently signed and recorded his latest recording ‘Blackside’ for his new record label JAZZ LEGACY PRODUCTIONS (JLP). This will be released in October 2012.
