With saxophonist John Ellis, vibraphonist Joel Ross, trombonist Alan Ferber, organist/pianist/accordionist Gary Versace, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Joe Dyson
“The tenor saxophonist John Ellis is a commanding instrumentalist with a most gorgeous, caramelized tone. And though he now lives in New York, his band gives away the fact that he learned an awful lot in New Orleans.” – NPR
John Ellis is one of New York’s premiere saxophonists, having performed and recorded on over 100 albums alongside artists including John Patitucci, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Robert Glasper, and Sting. Ellis is also a major force as a composer; he leads multiple bands and has received three composition grants through The Jazz Gallery, among other honors. Tonight, Ellis returns to Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola to lead his virtuosic Sextet comprising Joel Ross, Alan Ferber, Gary Versace, Reuben Rogers, and Joe Dyson.
