Dizzy's Club

Mark Gross Quintet + Strings

With saxophonist Mark Gross, trumpeter Antoine Drye, pianist Benito Gonzalez, bassist Ark Ovrutski, drummer Corey Rawls, percussionist Daniel Sadownick, 1st violinists Orlando Wells and Rieko Kawabata, 2nd violinists Eddie Venegas and Melissa Tong, violists Krisztina Kiss and Andrew Griffin, and cellist Maria Gabriela Figueroa.

Saxophonist Mark Gross consistently performs with the best musicians around, both as a headliner and in bands like the Jimmy Heath Big Band, John Pizzarelli Big Band, Mingus Big Band, Duke Ellington Orchestra, and the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra. It takes soul and an unfailing commitment to swing—in a huge variety of musical settings—to play in groups like these, and it’s with that spirit that Gross approaches his own shows with strings. The strings’ textures and melodies nicely compliment Gross’ hard-hitting saxophone playing and swinging rhythm section, adding a real freshness to well-loved standards and originals alike. Enjoy one of the top saxophonists on the scene in this admirable integration of swinging small group jazz and bowed strings.
