  • Holly Stephey & Ron Aprea ! New CD "Ron Aprea pays tribute to John Lennon!

    in Music

    Ron Aprea is extremely accomplished in his field for a guy who didn’t know what a saxophone was when he first started out. That’s right – one of the most talented (yet somehow under the radar) saxophone players around thought he was going to be playing clarinet. Ron grew up in Astoria, NY and clearly remembers seeing Pete Fountain playing the clarinet on television. Inspired to play, Ron went to his elementary school band director, Mr. Cahill, and asked to play  what he thought was Pete’s instrument, a saxophone.So that’s what the school gave him. That little mistake has given the world of Jazz an artist that contributes to the genre with exceptional skill to this day. John Lennon's life and artistry were taken from us in 1980, he left behind a treasure trove of musical masterpieces.Ron worked on Lennon's  Walls and Bridges album.  In 2014, Ron searched the former Beatle's library, and now pays a long-overdue tribute to the musical genius of  John Lennon. On Lennon's  Walls and Bridges album, John used 5 horns, dubbing them "Little Big Horns."  Ron's tribute also includes a horn section, along with a string ensemble, and added guest soloists.  The guest artists include trumpeter extraordinaire Brian Lynch, virtuoso violinist Matt Aprea,  jazz guitar veteran Dom Minasi, and a cameo performance by jazz vocalist Angela DeNiro.  Another special guest is trumpeter Steve Madaio, a fitting addition to this album, as Steve was also a member of the Walls and Bridges' Little Big Horns.  This collaboration is a mystical moment on this tribute, as Steve and Ron reunite in  a heart-felt tribute to their former bandleader,  with a stunning rendition of  Lennon's "Imagine".
