Album Notes

Coined by drummer Steve Rucker to describe the many jam sessions organized by Ron the thirty five years he was Professor of Jazz Studies at the University of Miami. The tracks on this CD are from recordings of the most recent ‘RonJams’ held at Ron‘s home in Dania Beach, Florida.

The musicians performing on this recording are among the best you will find in the South Florida area: Dave Fernandez, sax, a true professional, and much sought-after for both jazz performances and the Latin Music scene. Bassist Jeff Carswell, also the consummate professional, is active in the jazz and theater venues. Steve Rucker, arguably the most creative of South Florida drummers is Professor of Jazz Percussion at the University of Miami.
