Curious and forceful - New York Times. "Gross' playing is deeply, profoundly human, fat and sensuous yet hard and jagged, inflamed with a gleeful audacity." - Vancouver Courier. Longtime L.A., now Portland-based tenor saxophonist John Gross and New York drummer/composer Billy Mintz, two of the jazz world's most creative voices, collaborate on "Beautiful You," a compelling, moody set of originals by Mintz. After years of traveling with all manner of name big band, pop, jazz & bebop bands, Gross and Mintz have taken their experiences to develop extremely personal and unique approaches to their music.
