Ron McClure (Blood Sweat & Tears, Charles Lloyd)


Ron McClure’s extraordinary body work as a bassist, bandleader, composer, educator, and collaborator speaks for itself.



Rather than ramble on (Ron warned me about playing too many notes when I took lessons from him in the summer of ‘77!) … let me cite a few of my choice Ron McClure recordings: Charles Lloyd’s The Journey Within (1968); Joe Henderson’s At the Lighthouse (1970); Blood Sweat & Tears Mirror Image (1974), New City (1975), and In Concert (1976); Dave Liebman’s Doin’ It Again (1979), The Opel Heart (1982); Bob Mover (1979); Quest – II (1986), Natural Selection (1988); along with every release under his own name….
