Bass Player Ralphe Armstrong was born into a family of musicians and classically trained at Michigan's Interlochen School of Fine Arts before joining the Mahavishnu Orchestra at the age of 17. His early career placed him with a wide range of musicians, most notably jazz fusion acts Mahavishnu Orchestra and Jean-Luc Ponty. Later, he took time out to raise his children, but soon returned, playing jazz, funk, and even hip-hop, with the likes of Eddie Harris, James Carter, Curtis Mayfield and D-12.
