Ron Horton

Trumpeter, composer, arranger, Ron Horton is often referred to as “a musician’s musician”, and is frequently called as a sideman for such jazz artists as Andrew Hill , Jane Ira Bloom, Lee Konitz, Frank Kimbrough and Ben Allison. From 1998 to 2004 Horton was a member of Hill’s “Point of Departure” sextet, appeared on the group's critically acclaimed cd Dusk, (Palmetto 2000) , and was music director and co-arranger of Hill’s Big Band. He has been involved with the Jazz Composers Collective since its inception in 1992. His composing and arranging talents were highlighted on his debut CD, “Genius Envy” (Sept.1999), on OmniTone.
In 1994, Horton embarked on a musical journey to make the jazz community more aware of Hill’s music by transcribing over 35 of his compositions and arranging many of them for ensembles ranging in size from quartet to 16-piece big band. Many of these arrangements have been recorded (by the East Down Septet, Andrew Hill) and/or performed by Horton’s own ensembles for Jazz Composers Collective concerts. In May 2000, Horton’s big band performed an all-Hill program that was so successful that it inspired Hill to form his own big band later that year. Performances by Hill’s big band were recorded live at New York’s Birdland by Palmetto records and released in 2002 as “A Beautiful Day”, where Horton's arrangement of Divine Revelation opens the cd.
Horton is also an original member of the Herbie Nichols Project, a group co-led by Frank Kimbrough and Ben Allison, that is dedicated to performing known and unknown compositions of the late, great pianist. In 1995, Horton went to the Library of Congress and uncovered over three dozen of Nichols' songs that had never been recorded. Several of these works appear on the three cds released by the HNP on Soul Note and Palmetto.
Horton's latest release is Subtextures on Fresh Sounds New Talent (FSNT-175) and features pianist Frank Kimbrough, bassist Ben Allison and drummer Matt Wilson. It includes four new original compositions, as well as those by Frank Kimbrough, Olivier Messiaen and Frederic Chopin, and was recorded by Matt Balitsaris at Maggie's Farm in Pipersville, Pennsylvania.
Born in Bethesda,MD (1960), Horton has also recorded and/or performed for Michael Blake, Allan Chase, Will Holshouser , Rez Abbasi, Phillip Johnston, Andy Biskin, Ted Nash, Bill Mays, Jon Gordon, Andy Laster, Mick Rossi, Matt Wilson,Walter Thompson, John McKenna, Peggy Stern, and many others.
