"Niels Ryde er en usædvanlig begavelse, han er en af de få jazzbassister herhjemme, som fuldt og helt har valgt at koncentrere sig om den electriske bas. Det har han gjordt med et talent og en afdæmpet stædighed, som gør , at han i dag har udviklet et meget personligt spil, og så skriver han melodiske og effektive kompositioner med kvalitetssans. Ifølge Ryde selv kommer det nye band A NIGHT OUT til at byde på "både power jazz" og lyriske ballader, og det ligger fint til hans¨sofistikerede bassspil, der forener melodisk fokus og rytmisk fremdrift." Poliktiken marts 2013
" Nils Ryde is a wonderful composer and bass player. I find his compositions so much fun to play on. I think his writing is unique, melodic, and very interesting harmonically. He is also a great bassist, by his fantastic soloing and great rhythmic support." Lew Soloff(NYC)
" Niels Ryde is not just an innovative and sensitive modern player. He is also a marvelous and unique composer. With brains and heart to spare, Niels takes full advantage of the color palate - taking us on fantastic new journeys, which still follows the trajectory of tradition. He is a very special player." Kurt Elling, vocalist & Blue Note Artist.
Bassplayer Niels Ryde entered the danish jazzscene almost tree decades ago, with a new personal sound and aproace on the bass, he soon became a member of different jazz/funk groups, and started his own group in 88. Since then he have been a most sought after musicians on the Danish as well as the International Jazz scene.

"Music is my prayer for peace in the world "
Niels Ryde "There was always music in my house, my father played piano and my mother the fluth, and they listened to all kinds of music, from Bach to Stravinsky and Beatles to Bob Dylan, Armstrong to Bill Evans. I had rather eclectic taste."
Born in Denmark 1964, Ryde took up the bass at the age of 13, playing electric bass in school bands. Ryde quickly became an in-demand bass-player in different bands. At the age of 16 he got a double-bass. Niels says, "I..ve studied two years with a classical bass-teacher and played in the University of Aarhus Symphony. After a while I was more heavily into jazz, playing a lot of be-bop jobs on the local jazz-scene, at the same time I took lessons with the worldwide known bass-player Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen for one year."
At 16, Ryde began performing professionally with many different jazz & funk settings, both on elec.bass and Double bass. "I was still a very young player at that point," Ryde says. "Technically, I was prepared for the job, but I learned a lot about professionalism with these bands. In the mid eighties, Ryde made a swith back to elec bass, " I felt like commimg home again." Ryde tells, today he is a master of the electric bass
