Ron Di Salvio

Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1946, Ron began his musical journey at age eleven studying accordion with Alexander Matos. At age sixteen, after hearing Dave Brubeck play live at Carnegie Hall, Ron discovered his passion for jazz piano. He studied improvisation with the legendary Lennie Tristano. A self taught composer, Ron formed a trio and played jazz clubs in New York’s Greenwich Village in the late sixties. During this period he performed with Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson, Enrico Rava, Renee McClean, Roland Kirk and Art Farmer. In 1970 Ron married and moved to the Michigan’s Upper Peninsular where he started a family and the Wintergreen Natural Foods business. In 1981 Ron moved to Homer, Michigan, and began employment with Trojan Heat Treat Company. Starting as a furnace operator, Ron grew the company’s sales and employees and in 1986 became President and remains in that position currently.
