  • Having recorded with John Lennon in 1974 on the "Walls and Bridges" album, Ron will be producing a jazz tribute to Lennon and his songs.  Ron remembers recording with John Lennon and Elton John on the album Walls and Bridges and it created a longing to do a tribute album to John himself. The all-star horn section included Howard Johnson, Frank Vicari, and Steve Madeo. Ron Aprea, composer, arranger, producer, saxophonist, clarinetist, and flutist, has performed with Woody Herman, Les Elgart, Tito Puente, Frank Foster, Buddy Morrow, Billy May, Charlie Persip, Nat Adderley, Lionel Hampton, and Louis Armstrong. Ron Aprea,  jazz saxophonist & arranger, been recording and producing albums for over 30 years. In 1974, I had the honor of being one of the “Little Big Horns” on John Lennon’s 1974 “Walls and Bridges” album. John was an amazing human being, and my vision is to honor the music and spirit of John Lennon with a jazz tribute album. 

    *This album will include 12 songs, most of which are Lennon or Lennon/McCartney collaborations,  with a gem by George Harrison.
