Saxman Jeff Ryan is excited and for good reason. The contemporary pop instrumentalist’s debut single, “Up and Up,” flew to No.1 on the Billboard chart as well as on three other charts in the US and UK. Even before his debut album, Embrace, drops Friday (July 13) on Woodward Avenue Records, the buzz surrounding Ryan helped him score the final performance spot in the all-star lineup for the venerable Catalina Island JazzTrax Festival, a confirmation that the Bay Area native is the genre’s breakout new artist at the midyear point. In addition, Jeff was the Jazztrax debut artist of the year and the Smooth Jazz Network Break Out artist of the year with his 1st 3 songs co-written and produced by keyboardist, producer and composer Greg Manning, hitting #1, #3 and #6 on the Billboard Charts!
