Top Quality Talent
The playing on this album is stellar. Ronnie pulls out all the stops and demonstrates his awesome chops. The arrangements are polished and the band sounds very tight. My only complaint is that I would have liked to hear more of Joshua featured on the bass.

One of the finest Saxophones you will ever have the pleasure of hearing!

Sounds of Timeless Jazz

This is a stellar mix of urban and smooth jazz compositions.
There have been a plethora of father/son ensembles on the music scene over the years but Ronnie and Joshua Crumbly offer a fresh sound and new talent to listeners with open minds, hearts and ears. The multi-talented Ronnie Crumbly who has opened for such great acts as Dave Koz, Jeff Lorber, Patrice Rushen and Gerald Albright, among others, teams with his bass playing son on 10 remarkable songs. LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON also features Bill Fulton, who co-wrote several of the songs with Ronnie. 14-year old Joshua’s bass playing has been recognized to such an extent that he has received endorsements from Fender Amplification and Dean Markley Strings, a scholarship to Berklee School of Music Summer Program and appearances at NAMM trade shows. This is a stellar mix of urban and smooth jazz compositions fused with elements of R&B and funk. Great saxophonics should make this enough reason to add it to your collection.
