Ronnie Singer (June 9, 1928 – September 12, 1953) was an American jazz guitarist in Chicago and New York City during the late 1940s and early 1950s. His talent has been compared to Jimmy Raney[1] and his style noted as influential on other jazz musicians.[2] At the age of 25, he and his wife committed suicide in New York.[3] According to Lou LevyTemplate:Disambiguation needed, Singer "was one of the great losses...
