“Sharing New Orleans with the world is my calling,” says pianist and organist John “Papa” Gros (pronounced grow).“That’s what I have been doing and that’s what I’ll do with the rest of my life.”

For over three decades, Gros has brought his city’s celebratory culture to listeners around the globe. Gros mixes all the sounds of New Orleans - funk, trad jazz, brass band, blues - and makes it his own signature gumbo. His new solo album Central City, shows Gros capturing New Orleans’ distinct feel-good charm with help from some of its’ most renowned players.
