About the musicians 

Renée Manning has worked with the Mel Lewis Orchestra & the George Gruntz, Chico O’Farrill & Mingus Big Bands. She also toured Europe & Asia. Renee performed live on WBGO at the Sarah Vaughn Jazz Festival and brought down the house appearing with Jimmy Heath, Jimmy Owens, and T.S. Monk, at the BAM Cafe. Renee recorded with Arturo O’Farrill & The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra in Havana, Cuba, and her most recent CD is All Grown Up. 

Ron Jackson has been playing guitar with the lively expat jazz community in Paris, France later moving to New York City where he remains an active participant in Gotham’s always vibrant jazz scene. A master of the six, seven and twelve string guitars, Ron appeared on over 40 albums by such artists as Hal Singer, Graeme Norris, Ron Blake, Gisele Jackson and T.K. Blue, before founding the independent record label Roni Music in 2003 which has since released some of his eight of his albums as a leader including The Dream I Had (2003), Flubby Dubby (2008) and Akustik InventYours (2014). His latest project, Jazz Standards and Other Songs (2019) is an alluring mix of familiar jazz numbers and innovative adaptations of songs from other genre’s like his trendsetting arrangement for jazz trio of Drake’s “Passion Fruit.” Ron has made appearances in several major motion pictures including The Greatest Showman, Vulgar, and Fly by Night. He has also performed in pit orchestras on many Broadway and off-Broadway shows including Avenue Q, Fosse, Shuffle Along, and Bring In `Da Noise, Bring In `Da Funk.
