Tamir Hendelman & Ralph Moore

@ Blue Note Napa


Piano master Tamir Hendelman has chosen veteran saxophonist Ralph Moore to join him for a continuation of our Art of the Duo mini-series.

Tamir Hendelman was already a piano prodigy in his native Israel when, at the age of 12, his family moved to the U.S. He quickly established his credentials here by winning Yamaha’s National Keyboard Competition at age 14. After completing his formal music education at the Eastman School, Tamir began his career as an educator and a performance artist. Tamir is perhaps best known for his long association with the Jeff Hamilton Trio and the Clayton Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. In addition, he has collaborated and recorded with Tierney Sutton (NVJS February 2019), Diana Krall, John Pizzarelli, Gladys Knight, Jackie Ryan, Barbara Streisand, Roberta Gambarini, Natalie Cole, and Janis Mann.

Tenor saxophonist Ralph Moore has been described by the NYTimes as “a rhythm fanatic…. under a soft, woody tone with a bit of a rasp to it.”  As others have observed, that would suggest a cross between John Coltrane and Dexter Gordon.  After earning a degree from Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Ralph arrived in New York in 1981.  A list of his collaborators over the years reads like a compendium of our favorite jazz musicians – names like Oscar Peterson, Kenny Barron, Gene Harris, Ray Brown, Horace Silver, J.J. Johnson, Bobby Hutcherson, Billy Hart, Cedar Walton, and Freddie Hubbard.  Many know Mr. Moore as the big sax sound in The Tonight Show band from 1995 until Jay Leno’s retirement.
