MUSICIAN Born:

Ron English

Jazz guitarist Ron English has enjoyed a long and varied music career, with roots wide and deep in blues, Broadway, bebop, avant-garde, funk, Motown, and gospel.

Ron got started playing standards for dances and receptions around his native Lansing, where his father was a well-known guitar teacher, then graduated to a sort of roadhouse jazz and blues mix, in the bands of drummer Bud Spangler and Jackson tenor man Benny Poole, and various organ trios, including his long time employer and collaborator Lyman Woodard. Along the way, for his friends, Bob Baldori and the Woolies, Ron contributed the guitar solo on a classic blues rock “nugget,” the Woolies’ 1967 cover of Bo Diddly’s Who Do You love?

He joined the Detroit Contemporary 5, led by trumpeter Charles Moore, in the mid-60s
