Please help me ID this tree.

Form is upright vase-shaped, with a dense rounded crown, perhaps 20 feet tall. Seems to be fairly slow-growing, and is quite a handsome tree. None of my plant junkie friends know what it is... if anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

Yes, some kind of sorbus. It could also be sorbus intermedia
