On composing:

Sam Ross is one of the most innately talented and musical of pianists as well as hands-down the most prolific composer I’ve ever encountered in my experience of working with younger artists as an educator. Sam is so devoted to music that on a daily basis, it’s his walk in life to write epic works, not merely “tunes” but expansive journeys which entail beautiful colors and attitudes while always conveying his joyous, infectiously warm and playful spirit.”

— Benny Green (credits include Art Blakey, Ray Brown, Betty Carter, etc)

On musicianship:

Sam's talent and easy-going personality have a way of getting the best out of his fellow musicians. Along with his easy-to-read charts, we have all come to expect high musical experiences when Sam Ross is involved!”

— Albert Alva (Jazz Lecturer at Chapman University)

On teaching:

Sam Ross is a superb musician, teacher and human being! Anyone who has the chance to study with him should definitely take advantage of it. His training, experience, and communication skills will provide a perfect springboard for the aspiring piano student.”

— Chris Stevens (Director of Jazz and Marching Bands at Long Beach Poly High School)
