Biography

Ronald Laws, 3 October 1950, Houston, Texas, USA. Laws played the saxophone from the age of 12, growing up with the musicians who were to become the Crusaders - the band with which his brother Hubert Laws played. Ronnie studied at the Stephen F. Austin State University and then at Texas Southern University. When he was 21 he moved to Los Angeles, where he worked with Von Ryan’s Express, Quincy Jones, pianist Walter Bishop Jnr. and Kenny Burrell. After playing with Earth, Wind And Fire for 18 months, during the period when they recorded Last Days In Time (1972), he worked with Hugh Masekela and Ujima. His solo career in the late 70s and early 80s saw him achieve popularity with a smooth jazz style similar to that of Bob James, Earl Klugh, Lonnie Liston Smith and Grover Washington.
