GRAMMY-NOMINATED JAMISON ROSS SET TO DELIVER ALL FOR ONE
The Exciting Second Chapter In His Spectacular Artistic Evolution As A Singer, Drummer, Composer And Bandleader
Whereas Jamison Ross’ GRAMMY®-nominated, vocal-heavy 2015 debut disc, Jamison shocked some listeners who knew him primarily as a drummer, especially after he won the 2012 Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz International Drum Competition, his sophomore disc, All For One, scheduled for release via Concord Jazz, will surely solidify his reputation as one his generation’s brightest vocalists and drummers.
All For One boasts a cast of musicians of whom Ross has developed a strong rapport from touring – pianist Chris Pattishall, guitarist Rick Lollar (both of whom played on the 2015 debut), bassist Barry Stephenson, and Cory Irvin on Hammond organ and Fender Rhodes. Ross is particularly enthusiastic with the addition of Irvin on the organ because he likens that instrument to an orchestra that would accompany jazz singers like Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday. “When I first added the organ in my band, I was inspired by Marvin Gaye’s 1964 LP, When I’m Alone I Cry,” Ross explains. “[On that album] he sings jazz standards with a full orchestra. The organ is like my orchestra. The way I use the organ is a very calculated form. It produces the atmosphere throughout the record. And that parallels with how I grew up in church. The organist pulls the emotion out of every tune.”
The disc perfects the intoxicating chemistry of the 29-year-old’s debut, which intermingled blues, jazz, R&B and soul effortlessly. “All For One is literally the second chapter,” Ross explains after comparing the success of his debut and the world tour in support of that album as a “whirlwind of smiles and gratitude.” “There’s no deep way to view All For One other than it being the second chapter of me revealing myself as a man who loves as a father, husband, friend, and brother and as an artist who brings that love to other people while receiving love from my audience.”
