Ron Eschete Ron Eschete

Ron Escheté is called the consummate master of the seven-string guitar. While a student at Loyola University he majored in classical guitar, a student of Paul Guma, and minored in flute. Over the decades he has worked with the greatest artists in jazz including Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Diana Krall, Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Brown and many more, and can be heard on over 50 recordings. He regularly performs and records with the Ron Escheté Trio, where he is joined by Todd Johnson on six-string bass and either Kendall Kay, Joe LaBarbera or Paul Humphrey on drums. While his career has been primarily focused on performance, this master musician has dedicated nearly 25 years to teaching music at many colleges and universities, including North Texas State University, Utah State University, Loyola University, Louisiana State University at New Orleans and California State University, Fullerton where he teaches electric guitar and jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
