Pat Ryan came through the studio this week and told us about what he has coming up and where he is now with his music.
Here are some excerpts from his latest interview with the Falmouth Enterprises JOANNE BRIANA-GARTNER
"A presence on the Cape’s music scene for nearly three decades, Mr. Ryan is a performer, educator, organizer, and promoter, primarily of jazz music. One of his influences was Eric Jackson, host of WGBH’s “Eric in the Evening.” Mr. Jackson died last month. “He was known as ‘The Dean of Boston Jazz Radio,’ and he educated listeners with his thoughtful, personable curation of music, presented beautifully and consistently,” Mr. Ryan said. “I was a huge fan.”
“We brought many great musicians to Falmouth, some even before they became widely known, like Esperanza Spalding and Jon Batiste,” Mr. Ryan said. “We brought the late guitarist Pat Martino, Grammy-nominated vocalist and Hyannis native Kate McGarry, The New Black Eagle Jazz Band, Arturo O’Farrill, Dizzy Gillespie’s Alumni All-Stars, and many other renowned artists. We also featured fine local and regional talent, including the Falmouth High School jazz band.”
Limani will feature live jazz on Wednesdays from 7 to 10 PM, beginning October 19. More information can be found on the venue’s website or at PatRyanMusic.net
