Ron Escheté is the consummate master of the seven-string guitar. Whether he is playing bebop, ballads or blues he is a musically sophisticated guitarist who plays with grace and dignity. “Escheté is one of the finest jazz guitarists in Los Angeles area – no small achievement in a region dense with superb players,” JazzTimes

Ron’s current trio with Joe Bagg on organ and drummer Kendall Kay reflects a rich tapestry of melody, harmony and team-work. Escheté creates a spectrum of sound so rich that his voicings are often compared to those of the great pianist, Bill Evans.” JazzIs

Ron Escheté has been described as a masterful musical chameleon, switching melodic lines and ideas with cool efficiency and beauty. He transforms from accompanist to soloist to band-leader with ease and elan.” Los Angeles Times

Escheté is one of the best there is at playing the "traditional" melodic jazz guitar style. His repertoire embraces just about every beautiful song ever written… (frequently including the verse). He is quite simply the keeper of the flame.” Just Jazz Guitar
