About Mark Gross

Constantly pushing the music forward while staying true to the classic elements of Jazz, Mark Gross credits his prolific sound to the rich appreciation for Gospel music that resounded through his parent’s home in Baltimore, Maryland.

He toured the world for over 30 years as a saxophonist with Jazz greats such as Delfeayo Marsalis, Dave Holland, Mulgrew Miller, Nicholas Payton, Buster Williams, the Duke Ellington Orchestra, Dizzy Gillespie Big Band, James Moddy, Nancy Wilson, Freddie Hubbard, Jimmy Heath, John Lee, Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Charles Mingus Big Band, Cyrus Chestnut, Regina Carter, Lionel Hampton, Jimmy Cobb, and many others.  Mark has recorded on over a hundred Jazz recordings and has released four CDs as a lead Jazz performer: Preach Daddy on King Records, Riddle of the Sphinx on J Curve Records, Blackside on Jazz Legacy Productions (JPL), and + Strings on MGQ Records.

Currently Mark is the Director of Jazz Instruction at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), professor at Prins Claus Conservatoire in Groningen, Holland, and part-time lecturer at Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts.
