Monika Ryan returns to Timucua!
A one-time resident of the Carnegie Hall “Neighborhood Concert Series,” she has performed at The Big Apple In Nonoichi Jazz Festival in Japan. Her albums recorded over the past two years include a largely improvised jazz album with pianist Chris White, titled “Sketches”; “Fly,” a modern pop/jazz concept piece exploring the life of aviation pioneer, Charles Lindbergh; a holiday album “Merry”; “Crash,” music published in 1929, with guitarist, David O’Rourke; and “Windmills,” a tribute to the legendary lyricists, Alan and Marilyn Bergman.
Her latest album, “Changes,” released during the Summer of 2018, is a collection of songs written with humor, wit, and modern sensibilities, as well as steeped in deep jazz roots. Monika is writing material for her eleventh studio album, which will be recorded and released in 2019.
