Ryan Keberle’s All Ears Orchestra
February 20 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Hailed in the Downbeat International Critics Poll as #1 Rising Star trombonist, a player “of vision and composure” according to The New York Times, Ryan Keberle has developed a one-of-a-kind voice both on his instrument and as a bandleader, earning distinction among jazz’s most adventurous new voices.
Keberle has worked in endlessly varied settings with musicians ranging from superstars to up-and-coming innovators including Sufjan Stevens, Darcy James Argue’s big band, Secret Society, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake , Rufus Reid, Wynton Marsalis, Pedro Giraudo, Miguel Zenón, Brazilian superstar Ivan Lins, and with the Saturday Night Live house band. .As a featured soloist with the Maria Schneider Orchestra, he collaborated with David Bowie on his 2015 single “Sue (Or in a Season of Crime).”
Keberle’s outlets include the celebrated piano-less group Catharsis; the Big Band Living Legacy Project, and Reverso — Suite Ravel, a chamber-jazz collaboration with French pianist Frank Woeste featuring cellist Vincent Courtois and drummer Jeff Ballard.
Featuring many bandmates from those his ensembles, the All Ears Orchestra will play an array of originals and other acclaimed works.
His music will integrate his wide-ranging experiences into a highly personal vernacular — immersed in jazz tradition, drawing on world music, pop and other influences, seeking fresh and original pathways.
