Holli Ross

HOLLI ROSS has been called a "voice of experience" by the late jazz critic, Stu Troup from New York Newsday. Her vocal ensemble experience is well documented on recordings with the Washington DC-based quartet Mad Romance, and the NY- based quintet 5 Steps Beyond. Holli's work with these groups included high-level festival and concert appearances, such as a 5 Steps Beyond concert with Peter Nero and the Philadelphia Pops Orchestra in 1996. In pursuing her own solo career, Holli has performed at top jazz clubs and concerts nationwide, from New Orleans' Snug Harbor to California's Monterey Jazz Festival and New York's Blue Note

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
