Ron Kaplan is the genuine article.” …D. David Dreis “The heart and soul of a mature vocalist and leader…” …Jazz Improv Magazine “Kaplan phrases with sophisticated ease at any tempo.” …JazzTimes Magazine “What you have here is one of the most original singers to come along in quite some time from the jazz singing school of Mark Murphy and Tony Bennett polished off with some unique and handy swinging.” … In Tune International “Jazz singers come and go; few have staying power. Kaplan is one you can bet will be around for some time. First he’s a true jazz singer who knows his way around a tune, swinging in the irreverent manner that made singers like Mark Murphy, Jackie Paris and Mel Torme stars.
Kaplan’s a musician first and foremost using his voice as an integral part of the jazz mode.” …Rapport “Ron has superb command of a warm and flexible baritone that literally cocoons the listener within the cozy atmosphere of images it creates.” …Jazz Quad “Kaplan can be linked to the vocalist of the past who merged the Jazz esthetic with the melodic popular element to produce music that appealed to both camps. His light-handed approach and easy singing style are qualities that make him a very likeable commodity.” …Cadence In addition to his career as a concert performer and recording artist, Ron Kaplan also is the founder and executive director of American Songbook Preservation Society, a non-profit organization whose mission statement is: "To preserve our cultural treasure known as the Great American Songbook by performing this music at home and abroad as Ambassadors of Song."
