The Meisel Music Collective broadens today's jazz scene with neo-swing, hard-bop, and contemporary inspired jazz originals.
The group's performances are thought provoking, spirited, and idiosyncratic. Audiences relate to the passion on display because they see pieces of themselves in the music.
Performing compositions gathered from 2001-present, while honoring the past, Ryan combines the breadth and depth of his influences to create a style that is wholly his own. From early study with legendary bassist Richard Davis and frequenting the jam sessions in Madison, Milwaukee and Chicago to leading his own bands at jazz clubs, concert halls, and music festivals, his tunes tell a story where past and present meet.
Ensembles are filled out by long-time partner, Jake Polancich on Drums, Craig Rigby on keyboards, Dave Dinauer on Bass, and Cody Steinmann on Guitar.
