Who Are You was recorded with Ross’ band Good Vibes – with Immanuel Wilkins on alto saxophone, Jeremy Corren on piano, Kanoa Mendenhall on bass and Jeremy Dutton on drums – alongside Brandee Younger on harp.
Inspired by communication and storytelling, Ross devised the album in two narrative halves: the first seven tracks provide setting and character introductions, while the remaining eight tracks introduce ‘plot twists.’
Who Are You follows Blue Note’s reissue of McCoy Tyner’s 1968 album Tender Moments.
