The Steinway & Sons Podcast

Ralph Alessi

 

Jazz trumpeter and composer Ralph Alessi is the founder and director of the School for Improvisational Music and an ECM recording artist. He speaks to Soundboard producer/host Ben Finane — Editor in Chief at Steinway’s award-winning online music magazine listenmusicculture.com — about the practice of improvisation and the art of jazz.

‘There are two parts to playing: there’s the practicing and then there’s the doing it. So when you’re doing it, you can’t wish that you knew something better.... You work with what you have — right then.’
