Ralph Towner

The renowned guitarist began his career with the band Oregon, and went on to play with Gary Burton, John Abercrombie, Egberto Gismonti, Larry Coryell, Keith Jarrett, Jan Garbarek and Gary Peacock. Trained as a classical pianist, he plays only only unplugged 6-string nylon-string and 12-string steel-string guitars. In his recordings, Towner has made significant use of overdubbing, allowing him to play piano (or synthesizer) and guitar on the same track; his most notable use of the technique came on his 1974 album Diary, in which he plays guitar-piano duets with himself on most of the album's 8 tracks. In the 1980s, Towner began using the Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 synthesizer fairly extensively, but has since deemphasized his synthesizer and piano playing in favor of guitar. His latest release is My Foolish Heart, on the ECM label.
