Michael Ross – A Special Thing

A native of Chicago, Illinois. Michael Ross was encouraged at an early age to take private guitar lessons at the Chicago School of Music. While advancing his studies in music, Michael has played some of Chicago’s local jazz clubs. His first big break was becoming a staff guitarist for the New York Broadway National Touring Company’s production of “The Wiz,” that toured across the country.

Michael’s style and artistry have enabled him to perform with a number of great artists such as, Ramsey Lewis, Hank Crawford, Najee, Jimmy McGriff, Angela Bofill and Jonthan Butler.

Michael Ross continues to shine on his new release CD A Special Thing, a very romantic piece that takes the listener on a rendezvous of romance and adventure. He also put his guitar on spin on the classic tune Make It With You. His guitar work on The Blaze is exciting and moving.  Najee’s performance is awesome on The Secret Door, he’s playing outside of his traditional style which makes it very refreshing. Michael then is summing up the album with a touching and heartfelt melody For All The Good Times. This is an all around great CD, one you shouldn’t miss. A Special Thing is the new arrival at CDBaby.
