'I remember going to a David Sanborn concert years ago with my wife Teri and thinking how wonderful it is to have the opportunity to write and perform your own music. During the show, she told me that she would like to see and hear me up there. From that moment on I thought to myself, why not! It was a motivational moment for me'. -Ron One of the few multi-talented instrumentalist from South Florida who can play each instrument equally as well. Ron plays on Soprano, Alto, Tenor saxes and flute. He has been passionately working on his compositions for the last 2 years and the result is one great tune after another on this wonderful smooth jazz CD, 'Up All Night'. Track 3, 'I Know You're There' is the next Santana/Europa hit! This song is dedicated to his father and sister who he lost years ago. They will always remain in his heart and memories. Ron is a product of the University of Miami school of music. He majored in jazz performance and music education. He started his professional career in 1974 as a multi-insturmentalist (Alto, tenor and soprano saxes, flute and clarinet).
