My debut album First Impressions represents me overcoming one of the biggest hurdles in any artist's career, which is recording and producing their first album.
Following his performance and musical direction in the world premiere of LIGHTS OUT: Nat King Cole! that debuted in Pennsylvania late last year, pianist Ryan Slatko is beginning the New Year with a series of shows in support of his latest release, First Impressions.

Slatko, who is a native of Florida and recent graduate of New York University, released the album last fall. It is a culmination of the young musicians’ experiences thus far, and showcases an impressive line-up including Daniel Dickinson (alto/soprano saxophone); Linda May Han Oh (acoustic bass); Ulysses Owens, Jr. (drums); Joel Ross (vibraphone); and Samir Zarif (tenor saxophone); it was produced by Ulysses Owens, Jr. and recorded at Sear Sound Studio in New York.

His first performance will take place 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 9th at Shape Shifter Lab with his quartet featuring Ari Hoenig (drums), Matt Penman (bass), and Todd DelGiudice (alto saxophone); a second set will follow at 10:30 p.m. Later the same month, Slatko will appear at Minton’s Jazz Club in Harlem on January 23rd with Alexander Claffy (bass) and Mike Piolet (drums); sets are at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

Slatko continues to perform at new venues in-and-around the Tri-State area and will be adding additional dates in the coming months. For the latest updates and more information visit his website.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
