NEW YORK - Jan. 3, 2022 - PRLog -- Ron Aprea:  Mr. Aprea got his own alto saxophone at age 16 and started taking lessons in the old Radio City Music Hall building. It was also during this time that Ron would frequent the famed Birdland Jazz Club on Broadway. He spent a lot of time soaking up inspiration from all of the Big Band and Jazz legends that played the club – such as Count Basie and Blakey's Jazz Messengers. Both would prove to be major influences in Ron's career. It was at Birdland that Ron met Frank Foster who played with and arranged for Count Basie; the two became lifelong friends.
