He has nine CD’s out as a leader and is on more than sixty recordings as a sideman. His latest release as a leader is the 2012 “Bop Juice: Ralph Lalama Trio, Live at Smalls.” Ralph Lalama’s playing reveals an enormous depth of musical heart and knowledge. With his muscular, free-wheeling sound and masterful ability to tell a story through his horn. He has so graciously taken from his busy performance schedule to stop by and bring down the house with the Joey Berkley Band at the Center…a night you can’t get anywhere else.
