Ralph Salmins : Part quote from Ralph Salmins
"Interested in jazz and R&B from a young age, I became a professional musician at the age of 16 when I joined Ken Mackintosh's Band. My early influences drew me towards the great big bands and the exciting groove tradition that came out of New York in the early 1970's and by the age of 14, I was checking out Sonny Payne, Jo Jones, Philly Joe Jones, Jimmy Cobb, Art Blakey and Elvin Jones. My attraction to funk and R & B music brought strong influences from Bernard Purdie, David Garibaldi, Billy Cobham and my greatest influence, Steve Gadd. I started freelancing around London while studying classical percussion at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where I was awarded the Philip Jones Percussion Prize for my final recital in 1986. I've has been nominated for the British Jazz Awards three times, winning the Best drummer category in 2006 and been twice ranked top ten Studio Drummer in Rhythm Magazine Readers Polls. I won the 2003 Reader's Poll Studio Category at Mike Dolbear.com and was nominated for the 2007 Ronnie Scott's Jazz Awards.
