Product Notes

Sheila Ross was born 900 West End Ave. And 94th St. N.Y.C. to big band, (Georgie Auld, Skitch Henderson, Harry James and Benny Goodman), jazz saxophonist Adam Ross. Drove out west to be raised in North Hollywood in sunny southern California when Dad went to work for Capital records. There, among other things, he was responsible for the big hit Papa-Oo-Mow-Mow by the Rivington's and Grammy winner 'Should I Surrender' sung by Doris Day as well as the rest of the music in her films with Rock Hudson. Sheila attended the usual art classes, ballet, and of course music lessons, but was well warned of getting involved in the music biz! She eventually fled north to fall in love with the great forests and snow capped mountains of Lake Tahoe where she taught skiing and started a career in design, particularly restaurants.... The retreat amongst the pines only brought her closer to the wonderful 'family' of jazz musicians in the Reno-Tahoe area. She was able to sing with many of the finest, but the trio that stands out in her career was the late great pianist Ken Brown, with bassist Hans Halt and drummer Henry Ettman. For many years they played the 'Cottonwood' every Saturday night.... "Some of my fondest memories are of sliding into that snowy front door with our equipment.... And at times escaping to the sunny beaches...." While on holiday in San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur, Mexico, she met many wonderful local musicians as well as musicians on holiday and began singing at the Cabo San Lucas Hotel whenever in town. On one fateful visit, she walked into a nightclub to sing a couple of tunes with friends and met club owner Carlos Resendiz. Carlos was called down by four of his friends to start the salsa club 'Havana' the year before. But one by one they moved on to other things. Leaving Carlos and Sheila to while away the wee hours talking of bars and music. They now own the hottest jazz club in all of the Baja! Many musicians from all over the world play there including the likes of pianist Mike Melvoin, trumpet extraordinaire, Ingrid Jensen, guitarist Peter Sprague and bassist Bob Magnusson to name a few, and from south of the border she has worked with Cuban pianist Gabriel Hernandez, drummer Joaquin Gonzalez, bassist Tito Rodriguez and many more! Sheila is now singing with the Roberto Blanco Trio with Roberto on piano, Pedro Cervera on drums and Sebastian DiMarco on bass. The Havana Supper Club is located on the Transpeninsular Hwy.1 at km29, Costa Azul B.C.S.!!! Check Sheila out on You Tube singing with Pedro Cervera at Havana Contact Information: carlosandsheila@hotmail.com tel. 530-725-8621.
