Ross Russell was an American jazz producer and writer, as well as the founder of Dial Records. After World War II finished, he opened Tempo Music Shop, his own jazz record store, in Hollywood. He founded Dial Records in 1946 for him to record with Charlie Parker, who was living in Los Angeles during that period. He also recorded with Dizzy Gillespie, Erroll Garner, Howard McGhee, Dodo Marmarosa, Dexter Gordon, Wardell Gray, and Earl Coleman. As an artist, he loved Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong, and he wrote an essay on James P. Johnson.
