Ron’s bio in his own words:
“When I first sat at my Great Grandmother’s pump organ at around 5 years of age and played those first notes, I realized there was a magic that happened when I heard those airy sounds. I believe that moment set me on a lifelong quest of music. Being a musician and learning about music is a journey that thankfully never ends. I have had many magic moments:
When I first heard a recording of Charlie Haden, I knew he was my ideal. His rich organic tone hit in the center of my heart and I wanted to emulate his sound and feeling. Years later, I had the incredible opportunity to study with Haden in a Master Class at the Atlantic Center for the Arts. Then there was the time I met and spent time with bass pioneer Jaco Pastorious, who hugely influenced my playing of the electric bass. Over the years, I have shared the stage or recorded with artists as varied as Mose Allison, Charlie Byrd, Dizzy Gillepsie, Hank Crawford, Ray Charles, Sheila Jordan, George Hamilton V, Bucky Pizzarelli, Frank Kimbrough, Maria Howell and Dom Flemmons. These experiences always take me back to that old pump organ where my search for magic and beauty in music began and continues.”
