ALI RYERSON . . . . . JAZZ PIONEER
This Concert is Dedicated to the Memory of "Bumble Bee" Bob Weil
Ali Ryerson was one of the first women of her time to forge a career in jazz, long before others chose to follow in her path. She has emerged as one of the most exciting and versatile flutists on the scene today, having paid her dues alongside so many of the greats……Billy Taylor, Kenny Barron, Stephane Grappelli, Frank Wes and many more. Equally versed in Classical and Jazz, Ali spent several years performing in a duo setting with the great guitarist Joe Beck. With over two dozen albums as a leader to her credit, Ali continues to perform all over the world at major jazz festivals while consistently ranking among the top flutists in the Downbeat Jazz Poll for well over a decade.
More than a decade ago Ali began making Santa Fe her desired place of respite among the rigors of the road. Since that time we began a musical collaboration that has culminated into an annual concert, the result of which has become sold out performances every year. This concert will feature Ali with her long time sidemen Bert Dalton and Milo Jaramillo, performing a musical smorgasbord of some Brazilian music and some straight down the middle down home jazz.
As part of our ongoing series “Jazz at Site”, this concert is an absolute must for the serious jazz aficionado.
