Ryan Keberle Double Quartet
August 27, 2010

Since his arrival in New York City, jazz trombonist and composer Ryan Keberle has played in many styles, including all genres of jazz, avant-garde, Latin, classical, and rock. And though based here in NY, where he performs at noted venues, he also tours internationally.

Keberle graduated in 2001 from the Manhattan School of Music where he studied with critically acclaimed trombonist Steve Turre and composers Mike Abene and the late Manny Album. Upon graduation he received the William H. Borden award for musical excellence in jazz, given to one member of each graduating class. He went on to study with Wycliffe Gordon and David Berger as a part of the Juilliard School's groundbreaking Institute for Jazz Studies. In May of 2003, he became a member of Jazz at Juilliard's first graduating class.

Recently, Keberle performed on NBC with the Saturday Night Live band, and was selected as one of ten finalists for the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trombone Competition. Aside from being a regular member of the Maria Schneider Orchestra and about 15 other ensembles based in New York City, Ryan has also performed with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Frank Wess, Jimmy Heath, Slide Hampton, Charles McPherson, the late Percy Heath, Teo Macero, Jon Hendricks, Joe Lovano, Eric Reed, and Ivan Lins, among others.

And when not performing on stage, Ryan can be found in the classroom at City University's Hunter College, where he began his tenure as a visiting professor in 2004 or cooking in the kitchen of his Brooklyn apartment.
And you can surely expect some cookin' tonight in our last show at the Rubin Museum of Art for the summer of 2010!
