About Michael Ross: Hailing from Harrisburg, Pa., Michael spent his early years being mentored by bassists Cecil McBee, Dee Moses and Jim Miller, transforming his artistic trajectory in profound ways.

Within the vibrant music scene of Tampa Bay, Michael assumed leadership roles in two renowned and award-winning groups, Liquid Bebop and later the Michael Ross Quartet. Their albums, including “Doghouse” (2000), “Dog Eat Dog” (2002), “Year of the Dog” (2004), and his album “Ginger” (2014), stand as testament to their masterful fusion of genres. His latest work, “Giraffe” (2023), featuring a mix of new original material and his fresh take on jazz classics, is a testament to his unyielding passion for musical exploration.

Collaborating as a side-man with esteemed musicians such as Nat Adderley, Jimmie Cobb, Herbie Mann, Nathen Page, and countless others, Michael has left an indelible mark on the musical landscapes of Florida and the southern region of the U.S.

Embarking on his latest creative journey, the artist finds himself immersed in a captivating artistic collaboration with the vocalist, Fred Johnson. Powered by collective imagination and fueled by audience input, their performances are a mesmerizing display of raw improvisation. Every note, lyric and rhythm springs to life in the moment, leaving spectators awe-inspired and longing for more.

Michael’s artistic journey is defined by his unwavering passion, visionary approach, and a spirit that continues to captivate the realm of music. With each composition and performance, he invites audiences onto his musical voyage, where new realms of possibility unfold.
