Payson fans of jazz are very fortunate that Ron and Todd were able to arrange their schedules in order to perform in Payson. On Saturday, they will be giving a guitar clinic in Phoenix. They both teach in California at CSU Fullerton and CSU Long Beach, Loyola University, and Golden West College, and have taught at LSU, Musicians’ Institute, North Texas State University and other schools.
The Ron Escheté Trio has recorded five CDs and they may be available at this performance. The trio continues to perform regularly in the Southern California area and they have toured extensively in the United States.
