Ali Ryerson

Ali Ryerson has emerged as one of the most exciting and versatile flutists on the scene today. She has performed with such diverse talents as Dr. Billy Taylor, Kenny Barron, Stephane Grappelli, Frank Wess, Red Rodney, Laurindo Almeida, Art Farmer, Maxine Sullivan, Roy Haynes, Julius Baker, and (as principal flutist with the Monterey Bay Symphony) with Luciano Pavarotti.

Ali has toured the USA, Canada, Europe, Japan and Africa, and has performed in many major jazz festivals, including the famed Monterey Jazz Festival, the JVC in New York, Guinness Festival in Scotland, Edinburgh Festival in Scotland, and Carnegie Hall.

Ali has released over a dozen jazz albums, the first four on European labels. She was then signed by legendary record producer Bob Thiele who produced two albums on his Red Baron label. Ali then signed with Concord Jazz for an additional three recordings. Jazziz put her Concord debut album on its Critic's Picks for 1995.

Ms. Ryerson has released two recordings, in duo with guitarist Joe Beck, on the DMP label. The most recent recordings are with Flutology, 'First Date' featuring the Frank Wess and Holly Hofmann on the Capri label, and Ryerson & Rudoph's 'Soul Quest' on the PACT label, featuring Steve Rudolph on piano and Steve Varner on bass.

Ali had performed with Dr. Billy Taylor at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, a performance which was taped for national roadcast on NPR. She has appeared as guest soloist with the Ft. Wayne Philharmonic and the Greenville Symphony Orchestra.
