The Jazz Professional website is produced and presented by Ron Simmonds, a career trumpet player who played in very many of the great British, German and American jazz orchestras. For ten years he was Chief Editor (North America and the Far East) for the Deutsche Welle, Cologne and Studio Berlin.
Jazz Professional is not a showcase for the author, although he will appear from time to time in some of the bands and alongside other musicians. It is, rather, a tribute to the great and famous of the jazz world, written by one who was there amongst them.
