An impassioned and searching artist, Ryder's currently the only person we've met who can quote Kierkegaard through a tenor saxophone. He played our first hit, and if the Fates are willing, he'll play the last. Never one to let himself get in the way of the music, we like to give plenty of room to his heavy, penetrating solo turns.
