Jay B. Ross


“Entertainment lawyer Jay B. Ross fought for the people who made the music he loved. An expert negotiator, he went to bat for stars as big as James Brown and Muddy Waters, but he also clawed back royalties for countless forgotten artists who’d never gotten their due.”

-Chicago Reader/Yana Kunichoff

I utilized the musical styles of Jay’s most prominent clients for this piece. Starting with a Muddy Waters inspired blues guitar piece, a James Brown-esque funk track, and finally a Chicago house track written with Harrison Sherrod. For the final house track, we sampled the previous track I had written in the style of James Brown. This piece was nothing short of a pleasure, RIP Jay B. Ross.
