Vibraphonist Joel Ross has released “Gato’s Gift,” a fresh preview of his upcoming album Who Are You?.
The soothing tune features Ross’ backing band Good Vibes: fellow Blue Note artist Immanuel Wilkins on alto saxophone, Jeremy Corren on piano, Kanoa Mendenhall on bass and Jeremy Dutton on drums. Harpist Brandee Younger appears as a special guest.
“This record is a culmination of our maturing—as people, as a band, within the music—it’s about figuring out who we are,” Ross said in a statement. “I don’t believe in coming into anything with expectations. As musicians, we’re just expressing ourselves.”
