Critics note Kaplan’s phrasing, tone, diction, relaxed style, and his ability to get to the heart of a song with his own mark of musicianship, while featuring superb musicians in his live performances and on his recordings, enjoyed around world.

What the critics are saying… “Ron Kaplan is an original personality in the world of jazz vocalists and he has managed to put his name into that previously closed inner circle.

American Songbook Preservation Society...Singing the Great American Songbook By A. J. Julian Improvisational Promotions

Ronald S. Kaplan has spent most of his time as a singer pursuing his musical talent in the San Francisco area.

It has never been easy for an independent performer to get the World to take notice of their creative work and keep them motivated in this situation.

Mr. Kaplan has had to assume the difficulty of creating his own independent record company to document his work. Along with this, he has taken on many roles; as the performing artist, producer, marketing and promotion, and the booking agent.

In addition to this, he has created another undertaking for his engaging life and love for the Composers and Music of what has become known as “The Great American Songbook”. This has led to his creation of “American Songbook Preservation Society”.
