Ralph Moore's blend of classical and jazz influenced gospel music brings a unique sound to the contemporary Christian/Gospel instrumental music arena. A native of East Cleveland, OH, now residing in Gaithersburg, MD, Ralph is a trumpeter, composer, arranger and producer of inspirational music. With his debut, instrumental recording project, 'A Call To Worship' Ralph weaves a tapestry of various styles of gospel music, including Latin, Contemporary, Traditional, Neo-Soul, Straight-Ahead, Praise & Worship, and Classical that will captivate and inspire any audience. The grass-roots promotional tour for this release includes performances at local churches, regional events, and national conferences. Ralph Moore began developing his musical craft 26 years ago playing as a soloist as well as in marching bands, orchestras, and jazz ensembles. He further honed his skill in community choirs such as the Cleveland Interfaith Choir, and the Greater Cleveland Choral Chapter of the Thomas A. Dorsey National Convention of Gospel Choirs and Choruses. Ralph has also shared the stage with such national recording artists as Gary Oliver, Jared Ming, and Cheryl Frazier. 'A Call To Worship' also features a track recorded by and with national recording artists, Tye Tribbett and Sound Check. In addition to his solo work, Ralph has made guest appearances on several recording projects as a featured soloist or horn section leader, including 'He Reigns' (Living Faith Christian Center Live Recording), 'Instrumental' (Mark Jackson), 'Effortless' (MJ and Fresh Sound), 'COCHUSA Live: I hope To Meet You There' (Church of Christ Holiness USA National Music Workshop Congress choir).
