Hello Ronnie Laws - I had the extreme pleasure of meeting you when a group I was playing with at the time, performed at the 1988 Long Beach Jazz Festival. You were great, as always! BTW - I'm great friends with your buddy, Michael O'Neill - he and I went to high school together. Take care, Von Babasin

Tell us a little about your background...
Google the name “Ronnie Laws” in any search engine, and you’ll find worldwide diehard admirers of his unique and compelling musical voice. They describe his work as outstanding, timeless, funky, bad-ass, high-quality, and real music to make you MOVE! People continue to sample his grooves, and admire his style. For more than 35 years, this musical legend has used his saxophone and his voice to satisfy his audience.

Ronnie’s most recent album, “Voices in the Water,” is his 26th solo release. It blends R&B with Jazz Fusion, and a surprising drop of rock and blues. This new album follows the success of his albums “Dream a Little” in 2000 (which yielded the Urban Adult and Smooth Jazz smash hit, “Old Days/Old Ways), an “Everlasting” in 2004.

“Voices in the Water” is co-produced by Laws and veteran producer John Barnes (producer for Michael Jackson, Herb Alpert, and Betty Wright). The project, which was finalized and fine-tuned at Long Beach’s Century 22 Productions, is full of texture and imagination. An impressive list of musicians and vocalists add their own flavors to the album: Vocalists Louis Price, Martinette Jenkins, Joey Diggs and Bridgette Bryant, guitarists Rob Bacon and Freddie Fox, organist Tim Carmon, bassists Sekou Bunche and Alex Al, and legendary drummer James Gadson.

For Ronnie the title track of “Voices in the Water,” with its haunting flutes and intoxicating chorus, holds a special meaning:

“During Hurricane Katrina, witnessing the news blasting on TV, I saw how, literally, a people were being overlooked once again. I just started reflecting historically, figuratively how voices were being washed asunder from the time slaves were brought to North America, and how there were some who literally jumped off ships because they didn’t want to live a life of slavery. Those are voices that will never be heard.”

In the history of music, few artists have been able to find their true voice and consistently use it to create beautiful, pleasurable grooves. Luckily for us Ronnie Laws, who taught himself to play alto saxophone at the age of eleven, found his voice early on, and continues to make the most of his musical creations, his sax sound, and his true voice.
