30 January 1946, St. Louis, Missouri, USA. This cool, stylish singer made her debut on Sam Cookes Sar label in 1962. Selfish One (1964), her first single for Chess Records, showcased a mature delivery that further releases, including Ive Got The Skill (1964) and Take Me For A Little While (1965), amplified. Tailor-made for producer Billy Davis imaginative arrangements, she found it hard to maintain this standard on the several labels ? Brunswick Records, Scepter Records, Mercury Records and more ? to which she had later turned. An interlude on Jerry Butlers Fountain label resulted in Who Could Be Loving You (1969), an alluring, mid-paced ballad subsequently revived by Dusty Springfield. Ross was last heard on a 1981 album by Little Milton.
