Charles Ruggiero is a prolific musician in his own right. But you may also have heard of his Dad. Does Vinnie Ruggiero ring any bells? Charles grew up immersed in jazz. His father being who he was, Charles was no stranger to having a legend like Art Blakey just happen by. So, of course, here he is all these years later, a musician himself, and not just in the jazz scene. From touring with Ozzy Osbourne, to Geezer, with a bit of Chuck Mangione thrown in for good measure, Ruggiero continues to prove that genre-bending is not only possible, but also, a good business model. SJF is honored to have him (virtually) on this year's lineup.
