Ralph Towner

Ralph Towner “Ralph Towner is a guitarist’s dream, one of the most brilliant lights in the finger style universe.” Guitar Player Magazine

With a distinguished career that stretches back more than 30 years, Ralph Towner is a recording artist for the legendary jazz label ECM and an internationally acclaimed 12 string and classical guitarist. Best known as the lead composer, guitarist, and keyboardist for the acoustic jazz ensemble "Oregon", Towner has also had a rich and varied solo career that has seen fruitful and memorable musical collaboration with such great modern musicians as Gary Burton, John Abercrombie, Egberto Gismonti, Larry Coryell, Keith Jarrett, Jan Garbarek, and Gary Peacock. With reference to the great Spanish father of modern classical guitar, Towner is justifiably known as “the Segovia of our time”. He was even honored by Apollo astronauts who carried his music on cassette to the moon,  officially naming moon craters after two of his compositions, “Icarus” and “Ghost Beads”.

“Towner is one of the few players who can balance a flawless technique with a feeling and spirit that touches the listener on many levels.” Crusader News
