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
