Ronnie Leigh Live in Concert
With Dino Losito on Piano, Peter Chwazik on Bass, and Jimmy Johns on Drums
RONNIE LEIGH Jazz In The City’s co-founder and artistic director, Ronnie Leigh, also serves as artistic director for Fayetteville Jazz and has been impressing audiences for quite some time from Syracuse to Seattle, from New York to Istanbul, and throughout the United States. Ronnie is an Albany, New York native and six-time SAMMY (Syracuse Area Music Award) winner has also been inducted into the SAMMY Hall of Fame. Ronnie has performed with major Symphony Orchestras, and in theaters, arenas, stadiums, jazz clubs, concert halls, resorts, nightclubs and dance halls nationwide and worldwide. If you can imagine a venue, Ronnie Leigh has probably played it. After 40 years in the music biz, working with everyone from Smokey to Aretha to Ray Charles, and after 30 years of watching this guy, all I can tell you is that he’s one of the finest song stylists working in jazz today. But it doesn't stop there. He's also one of the finest Soul and R & B stylists I've ever heard and an amazing entertainer. The guy's the complete package. And it's not even remotely hype to mention him in the same sentence with the great Lou Rawls and the amazing Donny Hathaway. ~ Frank Malfitano, founder, Syracuse Jazz Fest.
