Alzie Ramsey

 

Born at Madigan General Hospital in Fort Lewis, Washington.  Due to his father's tenure with the U.S. Army, Al has been afforded the opportunity to travel around the world and acquire a rich musical history!  At an early age in Indianapolis, Indiana, he began his formal training through piano lessons and the rest is history. After his father retired in 1984 from the JAG Corps in Fort Lee, Virginia, he moved with his parents to sunny West Palm Beach, Florida where he quickly became one of the top fusion and studio players in the city.  Throughout his musical career, he's participated in performances from local rock bands to national jazz ensembles.

Al has provided musical support for varied situations - local studio work, jingles, original bands, churches, etc.  He can be seen in many different venues across the United States and has been recently been seen sharing the stage with Chuck Loeb, Kim Waters, Alex Bugnon, Marion Meadows and many others.  He currently has been touring with Smooth Jazz violinist Noel Webb.

For the majority, Al has been playing Jazz and Gospel sprinkled with other genres although he enjoys playing and listening to all types of music (especially Electronic!).  Al has been strongly influenced by Ahmad Jamal, Alex Bugnon, Ramsey Lewis, Bob James, George Duke, Russell Ferrante (Yellowjackets), Joe Sample and Herbie Hancock in his keyboard performances.  He states that the band that influenced him the most while growing up was ELO (Electric Light Orchestra). 

Al's motto: "When I play, I don't like to overdo anything. I try to keep it simple, legible and let the music guide the moment."

He attributes all of his success to God and the people who have been close to him and have supported his career, especially his family.  His experience and talent keep him constantly in demand.
