Ramona Borthwick

Born and raised in Bombay, a mega-metropolis on the west coast of India, Ramona Borthwick was exposed to music at an early age. Encouraged by her father, a well known musician and film composer, she began piano studies at age five, soon followed by studies in Western classical music. A move to Canada in the early 90's and later Boston, MA, allowed her to widen her artistic depth and growth as a musician, composer and teacher.

Ramona Borthwick: One of Us

Read "One of Us" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Pianist Ramona Borthwick is nothing if not generous--offering up over seventy minutes of quality music on this, her second recording as leader.

Ramona Borthwick: A New Leaf

Read "A New Leaf" reviewed by Budd Kopman

A New Leaf is at turns melodious, swinging, emotional and cool. Like Min Rager's Bright Road, it is brimming with energy and good vibes, and the compositions are first rate. The choice of title tune is always instructive, and the opening “A New Leaf" exposes Ramona Borthwick's many influences. Starting with a simple, ...

Ramona Borthwick: A New Leaf

Read "A New Leaf" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
