Ronny Smith Quintet

"Ronny Smith's energetic vibe and traditional meets contemporary, blues and gospel spiced approach to standards and original composition  have instantly captivated audiences and helped him form a powerful connection to them.” – Jonathan Widran, The JW Vibe "

Guitarist Ronny Smith's mellow tone, subtle creativity and ability to groove over catchy rhythms have made him an increasingly popular force in contemporary jazz.” – Scott Yanow, Renowned jazz Journalist and Author

"Sometimes in the middle of night I wake with a start and wonder if any guitar-based contemporary instrumental music would ever have been created if George Benson, Wes Montgomery and Joe Pass had never been born. After hearing the first few seconds of Ronny Smith's “Bossa Awhile," you'll note the influences from this troika of geniuses and know that their legacies are in good hands." - Brian Soergel, Jazz Times

Can't Stop Now - Hit #1 on Billboard's BDS New and Active smooth jazz chart and ultimately reached #25 on the Billboard BDS Top 30.
