Jazz pianist Arnold Ross born on this day in 1921. Obscure… maybe… but Ross recorded in some really great groups in the mid 40s and even worked with the traveling jazz show Jazz at The Philharmonic. Then his recording career diminished until the early 50s when he cut some sides with both Dizzy Gillespie and Barney Kessel. However he is then found working as pianist with Ray Anthony, then makes a recording date with Benny Carter for the Aspects album, but from 1962 to 1976 appears to fall off the face of the earth till 1975. I personally don’t think the guy ever played a bad note and the four sides in the next prove it. So what happened to this cat Arnold Ross and why didn’t he become a star? Well….. In the early 1960s Ross was holed up in the Tulare County Mountains at a drug treatment facility called Synanon as was jazz guitarist Joe Pass. In fact they formed a jazz group called Sound Of Synanon and had a release on Pacific Jazz in 1962. So it appears as if, like many of the musicians of the mid 40s bop school, Ross got hooked. Here is Arnold Ross on piano in a variety of settings in the mid 40s…first with Anita O Day
