Performance Reviews

"Ron has been a powerful advocate for many of us on the NYC music scene for years. He supported many dreams of young musicians and brought many of us to the forefront through his dedication, caring, and daring. This project was an opportunity for musical friends to join together to help Ron realize his dream of recording a CD with a unique combo of musicians who had been touched by his light! Ron has a voice that empowers the soul and encourages the heart! His flugelhorn voice is a comfort-a warm embrace from a friend. Let this music take you to a peaceful place...enjoy! "

-Rachel Z Hakim, Pianist
