Ralf is a master on the trumpet and the flugelhorn. His ballad-styled solos are soft and heart-warming, tones sweet like honey - often combined with a smooth echo. His playing reminds you of Jazz trumpet legend Chet Baker.
A glistening gem in the trumpet section! Ralf easily masters every solo in a fascinating manner adding a lot of heart and soul and amazing technique to it.
Wow! When closing my eyes I thought Chet Baker was alive again on stage!
What a "sound rocket"! Jazzy and virtuous trumpet improvisation - screaming, howling, sometimes demanding, then giving in again, even sighing at times. Highest musical talent easily delivered!
