Acclaimed vibraphonist Joel Ross returns with his remarkable fourth Blue Note release nublues, an album of blues and ballads as refracted through the prism of one of the most creative modern jazz groups of our time.

Communication is a key element of the album; both the communication between the musicians and the listener with an emphasis on singable melodies, as well as the profound and intuitive musical conversation that occurs within this tight-knit band featuring Immanuel Wilkins on alto saxophone, Jeremy Corren on piano, Kanoa Mendenhall on bass, Jeremy Dutton on drums, and special guest Gabrielle Garo on flute.

The 10 tracks here include seven new Ross originals as well as pieces by John Coltrane ("equinox" and "central park west") and Thelonious Monk ("evidence") many of which are performed as spontaneous suites with the band moving seamlessly across the blues-imbued musical terrain.
