A Special Thing @ iTunes
Michael has released his latest CD “A Special Thing” featuring Najee. This project is very special. It allowed him to create a timeless piece of work for the listeners to enjoy and travel through musical sounds that capture the romance, the reminiscence of old school days, and an adventure through a secret door of mystery with a groove. Yes, “A Special Thing” just for you.
This smoky, seductive slice of smooth jazz comes with the added bonus of some of the finest male vocals I’ve heard in quite some time, barring a few special names. Guitarist/ vocalist/composer Michael Ross, who is no stranger to the genre (having released 3 other CDs dating back to the late 90s), pours on the charm in abundance, both with his guitar and his easy, silky vocals, with his latest offering, A Special Thing.
With an opening and title track that sways with that special rhythm that might remind one of walking along the shores of Rio de Janeiro, hand-in-hand with that special someone, Ross sets a delightfully tasteful tone that starts here and might move through the end of the album, but certainly not to the end of the experience.
Bright Moments Ahead
Michael Ross started out the year with his new release Bright Moments Ahead. This is his third CD. His distinctive and captivating sound personifies the NAC/Smooth Jazz sound, it's a must-hear. It's evident that he plays from the heart with an exciting touch that seems to light up your mood. Track one The Boss gives you the essence of cool and smooth all combined into one. Track four, That Summer Night takes you right into that hot exciting summer night. Track 5 is the title track, Bright Moments Ahead. This song will give you that positive feeling that something great is about to happen. Track six, Michael kicks off with Her Latin Dance, giving it that authentic flavor. He's playing a nylon acoustic guitar on that track. This is an all-around great CD, he's someone you don't want to miss.
