British Jazz: Tribute to Ronnie Ross July 13, 2008

Posted by wallofsound in Jazz.

In researching into British jazz (there’ll be a flurry of posts on the topic after the summer) I’ve stumbled across a wonderful blog on British Baritone sax player Ronnie Ross. There’s an almost complete discography of Ross’ work with rapidshare links to high quality files of each record. http://ronnierossmusic.blogspot.com/

Ross played with Don Rendell in the late 1950s, played at Newport in the US in 1958, then a series of big US and UK names in modern jazz through the 1960s. He died fairly young in 1991. A fine musician, there can be no better memorial than playing his records non-stop for a few hours.
