On September 16, 2018 our dear brother and friend Ron Sutton ascended to ancestral hood. He was a beautiful, kind person, a regular guy and dedicated his life playing his saxophone and making people happy with his music.  For the past twenty years Ron battled Lupus and severe Arthritis. He never let it get the best of him and kept studying, practicing and playing his heart out. He was a true Cultural Warrior.

On the DC Jazz scene Ron Sutton was highly respected by his peers, a local legend and a pillar in the community.  Everyone loved him..

Even though he didn't receive just due recognition Ron could stand his ground with the best.
