Ryan Keberle


Since his arrival in New York City thirteen years ago, trombonist and composer Ryan Keberle has emerged at the forefront of the New York City music scene as a first-call trombonist and composer. While jazz and improvisation are his passions, Mr. Keberle’s career reflects his diversity of musical interests ranging from Ravel to The Beatles to Duke Ellington to Sufjan Stevens to the Fania All-Stars. When not performing in New York City’s major venues, Mr. Keberle is often touring the country and the world, having performed extensively throughout Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America.

Mr. Keberle graduated in 2001 from the Manhattan School of Music where he studied with critically acclaimed trombonist Steve Turre and composers Mike Abene and the late Manny Album. Upon graduation, he received the William H. Borden award for musical excellence in jazz, given to one member of each graduating class. He went on to study with Wycliffe Gordon and David Berger as a part of the Juilliard School’s groundbreaking Institute for Jazz Studies. In May 2003 he became a member of Jazz at Juilliard’s first graduating class.
