ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Ryan Montano is much more than just Jazz or smooth jazz for that matter. We could say it’s fair to illustrate Ryan Montano’s style as being more Instrumental pop than smooth jazz.
For jazz fans that hear Ryan for the first time, it’s always a pleasant surprise. You will hear everything from an instrumental version of ‘Shake your body’ to a latin jazz version of ‘Just the two of us’ by Bill Withers, right all the way to Ryan’s very own Billboard chart topping song, “I’d Like That’.
Ryan and his band stopped by this morning and demonstrated his jazz sensibilities and emotive songwriting. You’ll notice how captivating his fusion of jazz, folk, blues and singer-songwriting style truly is in his performances above.
You can see Ryan perform Saturday, May 30th at the Albuquerque Museum Amphitheater as part of the ‘Jazz Under The Stars’ series. Go to www.nmjazz.org for more details on Ryan’s upcoming show and the ‘Stars’ series.
