Ronnie Laws

The younger brother of Hubert Laws, Ronnie Laws has a nice soulful sound on tenor, but has never seriously pursued playing jazz. Throughout his career, which includes early-'70s gigs with Quincy Jones, his brother, Ramsey Lewis, and Earth, Wind & Fire, Laws has essentially been an R&B player. He has led his own albums since 1975, but recorded very little of interest to the jazz world, although he is often listed on Billboard's contemporary jazz chart. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

The person who wrote this bio is clueless.

Wow!! I totally agree with Andy Rowe. What has the writer created that can come close to comparing, I wonder. Ronnie Laws makes sweet music that nurtures a mellow feeling within. The writer? He's just another butthead.
Report as inappropriate
Abhandy2, couldn't agree more. What kind of axe did THIS biography "author" have to grind. Goes way past if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing"... I'm no jazz officianado but glad I found Ronnie's disks at a music store in 1978. Those who can't do criticize... In the arts, as in no other area of endeavor! Except maybe politics...

Ronnie Laws flat out COOKS!! Why can't you just listen to music for the enjoyment of it and stop trying to label everything you hear by being the GREAT HYPE CRITIC!! If you don't know...ASK SOMEBODY!!
Report as inappropriate
I totally agreed with the previous writers, Ronnie is the lick and was notably ahead of his time. Ronnie had his own style and is good at it. Why people who don't know A dam thing about trial blazers WONT TO TRIP ON THEM. As Doc Rivers (coach of La Clippers) said, You just be you. Ronnie you just be you..

Kristen Taylor you are dead on with your cast of characters but add Herbie, Roy Ayers, Brian Auger and Rit. Ronnie and these cats were way ahead of their time. The cat that wrote the bio should ask someone from the Steel City back in the early 70's.

I think it's time to stop reading these bios. The one who wrote the piece on Ronnie must have lost his girlfriend to him.

@ Sidney Taylor - regarding your comment/ques t i o n from 10 mos. ago .... I believe he resides somewhere in SoCal; I saw him perform in 2012 in the Temecula wine country. Still active and his performance was as hip and expressive as it ever was :)

Pressure sensitive is the best Ronnie Laws alum ever.

I have to disagree with this Review. My Dad, Steven Gutierrez, played drums with Ronnie on several albums from Fever to Friends and Strangers. Ronnie took Jazz in a new direction with his style of music. He is and always will be an important bridge from Jazz to Fusion, from which many Artist Sprang up. His unique crispy clear, graceful and tasteful runs up and down the scales, where you hear every note is almost un matched in any time period, Mchamp.

@ Kristen Taylor... you left out 1 of my favorites and possibly most talented of the jazz fusion era the preceded so called smooth jazz. The one and only Lonnie Liston Smith, he was years ahead of his time, and now in his late 60s has not missed a beat. Saw him recently and he is still spectacular!
Report as inappropriate
I beg to differ with this review. Ronnie Laws was right there when smooth jazz was in it's infancy. We also called it fusion. Laws, along w/Grover, Duke & Clarke, Rushen, Lenny White, Sanborn, Metheny, Flora Purim & Airto, Jeff Lorber Fusion (w/Kenny G before he went out on his own & his stuff started sounding like elevator musak) - ahh, the list goes on. They had some bass, some bottom, some funk & fused it all up in the jazz - and it was smooooooth.

*did PLAY saxophone, (story below of my buying a cool Ronnie Laws album as a young man...)
Report as inappropriate
I was "top 40 ALL THE TIME" thru HS and college. As a freshman in college '77 or '78, I saw an album of jazz (well, I did Rey saxophone til I was kicked out of band in 6th grade!) and bought that album 'cause of an airbrushed bee, flying thru a flower petal... No other reason. The music, w/o even LYRICS, was so cool. As a Christian, used to "too short", missing, or dismissive artist bios, but never an UNFRIENDLY one like this. Blessings on ya!
