Ronnie Baker

Along with guitarist Norman Harris, and drummer Earl Young, he anchored “The Sound of Philadelphia.” Late, great producer / composer / bassist Ronnie Baker is a giant of the instrument, plying soulful passages that have moved generations and will continue to do so by way of digital sampling and young cats who do their research.

I’ll give you a Baker’s dozen of Ronnie’s esteemed credits: Labelle, Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes, The O’Jays, Billy Paul, The Spinners, The Stylistics, MFSB, Blue Magic, The Trammps, Archie Bell & the Drells, Mighty Clouds of Joy, and Johnny Nash, just to cite a few!
