FEATURING THE RYAN MEISEL QUARTET & LOCAL YOUTH JAZZ TALENT
On Friday November 16th BlueSky Jazz had an evening with the Ryan Meisel QuArtet & local youth jazz talent. Ryan Meisel & Jake Polancich aren’t just bandmates, sax & drums respectively, they are visionaries who have a passion for teaching the art of jazz to students. Ryan is a teacher at Erin School in Hartford. Jake is the director of bands at Arrowhead HS. Together they have been collaborating for many years through clinics, workshops, & performance opportunities.
The Event Included:
They continued the tradition of the “jazz jam session” as they invite local area students to perform with their group. Spontaneously performing on the bandstand upholds the generations old tradition of passing the mic from professional to new up-and-coming young musicians. Also performed: Milwaukee musicians Craig Rigby on piano and David Dinauer on bass.
