The J Ryan Trio plays jazz standards and down home blues all with a soulful feel in and around Milwaukee with every last dollar raised from album sales and live performance going to charity.
Their philosophy is this: have a great time while supporting a great cause. Talented musicians free to express themselves in an environment of love and fellowship produce a joyful sound. Sounding tight on every last note is good, but will always take second billing to a sound that is true, genuine, real and from the heart. Never the musical equivalent of processed food, rather a jambalaya of good improvisational ingredients cooked up a little different each time. The minute it stops being fun for the band or the listener, we all take up golf.
