Spirit & Truth
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, Ralph is a trumpeter, composer, arranger and producer of inspirational music. Ralph began developing his musical craft over 28 years ago playing as a soloist as well as in marching bands, orchestras, and jazz ensembles. He further developed his skill playing with various community choirs and groups in Ohio and the greater Washington DC area. Ralph has also shared the stage with such national recording artists as Yolanda Adams, Kurt Carr and the Kurt Carr Singers, Tye Tribbett, J Moss, Lisa McClendon, Fortitude, Gina Bell, Gary Oliver, Jared Ming, and Monique Walker. In addition to his solo work, Ralph has made guest appearances on several recording projects as a featured soloist or horn section leader. Throughout the nation, in every setting, be it churches, concerts, festivals, or Christian venues, he consistently touches lives through the sound of the trumpet. With his debut instrumental recording project \'A Call To Worship\', which received the 2005 Tiffany Gospel Award's "Instrumental Gospel CD of the Year", Ralph weaves a tapestry of various styles of gospel music that captivates and inspires listeners to seek more intimate levels of worship. \'A Call To Worship\' features a track produced by and recorded with national recording artist Tye Tribbett and his band, Sound Check. With his sophomore release, \'The Sound of Christmas\' he engages the listener in a masterful musical celebration of the birth of the Lord, Jesus Christ. CDBaby.com, the largest online distributor of independent music, describes it this way: \'Hearing a truly gifted artist interpret traditional Christmas songs in their own unique way is my favorite part of checking out holiday music. Here\'s a perfect example of a beautifully crafted spin on some old favorites, revealing an album that easily stands out from the pack.\' His latest release, \'Spirit and Truth\' extends the worship experience with the help of extraordinary producers P. J. Morgan, American Levite (Phil Hughley and Thaddaeus Tribbett both of Tye Tribbett\'s band, SoundCheck), and Wydell Croom. \'Spirit and Truth\' also features some the premier \'first call\' musicians in the music industry today. This latest release bridges the gap between so-called Gopspel and Contemporary Christian music, blending both into a singular offering of praise and true worship.
