Ron Sutton, Jr. is a native of Washington, D.C. Ron was exposed to music at an early age by his grandmother Lillian Morris-Talley and Ron Sr. Starting out with the trumpet in the 3rd grade and switching to clarinet in 7th grade, then alto sax, while attending Duke Ellington School of the Arts. While attending Ellington, he was formally guided into the music "jazz" by music instructor Mickey Bass and school mates Wallace and Antoine Roney. He later joined a local youth jazz organization called "Lettumplay", that was founded by the late impresario of the music, Tony Taylor. Taylor would go on to own the famed Bohemian Caverns.

Leaving D.C. in 1983, Ron found himself at the University of Hartford's Hart School of Music, where he began a musical relationship with the late legendary saxophonist Jackie McLean.

Ron later moved to New York City, where he was introduced to drummer Rahshied Ali. There, he was given a chance to play, as well as doing his first professional recording. Jackie McLean later introduced and recommended Ron to jazz great drummer Arthur Taylor. At this time, his band mates were Abraham Burton, Jacky Terrason and Tyler Mitchell. Ron spent time cutting his teeth also by sitting in with the likes of Freddie Hubbard, Roy Haynes, Art Blakey, and others.
Ron Sutton has recorded with many jazz greats. These include Rashied Ali, Ken Shepard, Karl McNeil, Vaneisa Handy, Aaron Walker, Donvonte McCoy, and a few recordings with Marc Cary.
He has a wide range of musical influences from Charlie Parker, Jackie McLean, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, as well as other instrumentalist from Bud Powell to Herbie Hancock, Art Blakey to Toney Williams... and many in between.
The Late Saints
The Late Saints
Led by Italian-born vocalist, guitarist, and kazoo virtuoso Jacopo de Nicola, bassist Mike Huff and drummer Micah Hebbel, The Late Saints bring on stage their genre-bending Italian Gypsy Rock. Expanding on the tradition of the Italian Cantautori, empowered by frenetic rhythms a la Manu Chao and Gogal Bordello, this Philadelphia based trio takes the audience on a journey across Balkan influenced two-steps, Latin American Tropicalia, and poignant protest songs. They will be joined by cello virtuoso Sheila Hershey. Ciao !
