Map of Ron Kobayashi Trio,
The RON KOBAYASHI TRIO consists of three uniquely talented musicians from the Southern California area. Each musician brings with him years of diverse musical experiences. Pianist and leader Ron Kobayashi has performed with Mel Torme, Peter Frampton, Margaret Whiting, Herb Jeffries, Kenny Burrell, Eric Marienthal, Dave Koz, Tim Weisberg, Peter White and Paula Kelly Jr. He was a featured performer on the international 'Johnny Yune' television show, the 2002 Jerry Lewis Telethon and on the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather. In 1992, Ron performed for President Bill Clinton.

Bassist and composer Baba Elefante was voted one of the nation's top bass players in a Bass Player Magazine poll. He played on the 1995 Universal motion picture 'The Hunted.' Baba has performed with jazz trumpeter Roy Hargrove, saxophonists Pete Christlieb and Justo Almario, vocalist Michael Sweet, 'Yes' keyboardist Patrick Moraz and 'Kansas' lead vocalist John Elefante.

Drummer Steve Dixon has done numerous recording sessions both as a drummer and percussionist. He has worked with 'War' harmonica legend Lee Oskar, jazz saxophonist Richie Cole, trombonist Bill Watrous, vocalist Tierney Sutton and Warner Brothers recording artists 'The Untouchables.'

The RON KOBAYASHI TRIO has played numerous music festivals including the Playboy Jazz Festival in Pasadena, San Bernardino Music Festival, The Orange County Art and Jazz Festival, the Dana Point Jazz Festival, the Yorba Linda Arts Festival, the Orange Street Fair and at the Colorado Belle in Laughlin, Nevada. The Trio has worked in Orlando, Florida; Las Vegas, Nevada and shared the stage with such notable artists as: David Benoit, Eddie Palmieri, Cirque Du Soleil, Strunz and Farah and The Fabulous Thunderbirds. The Trio is currently the house band for the Annual Hollywood Diversity Awards where such stars as Chris Rock, Vince Vaughn and the cast of NBC's 'West Wing' have been honored.

The Los Angeles Times says the Trio are 'superb jazz stylists.' The RON KOBAYASHI TRIO CD 'No Preservatives' (Carpet Cat Records) was described as a 'five star session from three of the Southland's finest' by the LA Jazz Scene. The Orange County Register wrote: 'If you define jazz as spontaneity, emotional expression and communication among musicians, you won't find anything better than 'No Preservatives.' The CD is currently being played on radio stations throughout the U.S. and Canada and made the 'Top 10 Playlist' on KAWC in Arizona. In 1996, the trio was voted 'Best Jazz Group in Orange County' by readers of the Orange County Weekly.
