Reminds me of Strangalia, but I've never seen one that is all black. Not the greatest pic so it can be frassed.

no Strangalia; need a dorsal to tell beyond Lepturini
suspect Typocerus lugubris, but this is by no means an ID
-

 
I think
I may have a dorsal shot of this specimen. Will post when I find it.

 
please do; thanks
a dorsal view, however blurry, says much more than even a nicest side view alone

 
Added
the second image. Not as good as I had thought, but hopfully its' what you are looking for.

 
ha! thanks much --quite surprising, frankly...
best guess, Leptura plebeja; will poll bycid community...

 
ID confirmed by Doug Yanega:
"It's clearly a Leptura, given the posterior crease on the pronotum, and strongly tapering pronotal margins, and given that only the basal portions of the flagellomeres are orange, it is pretty certainly plebeja rather than abdominalis."
