The new Ryan Keberle and Catharsis release  Find the Common, Shine a Light is receiving great media response. Here is a selection of press on the record.

“Find the Common, Shine a Light is the latest compositional victory to spring from the mind of trombonist Ryan Keberle and his restelessly ambitious ensemble Catharsis …
Suite-like in its scope and unity of purpose, the album is a mix of barbed yet beauteous originals and covers of enduring protest songs…”
– Andrew Zimmerman, Downbeat Magazine (**** Review)

“This fantastic quintet, led by trombonist Keberle, has been the talk of the scene for the past few years on the strength of their unapologetically emotional albums and their embrace of everything from jagged experimentalism to pure Latin grooves. … Find The Common, Shine A Light, is a powerful work that brings in new interpretations of popular song as well as originals that breathe and seethe on our behalf.”
– Robert Ham, Paste Magazine

“The new album feels like a natural progression from last year’s Azul Infinito, which mapped out Keberle’s thoughtful relationship with Latin American sounds.”
– Richard Gehr, The Village Voice

“Trombonist-bandleader Ryan Keberle’s band Catharsis has some especially strong and timely sentiments to share these days. The limber and distinctive group sets the themes of progressive, post-Trump politics to music, with vocalist-guitarist Camila Meza entrancingly singing old and new songs of protest and resistance.”
– Peter Hum, Ottawa Citizen

“As easy it is to focus on the lyrical aspect of this program, do not neglect the music. This is a “working band” and they speak as “one.” … Ryan Keberle & Catharsis ask us to be diligent in the face of tyranny, to be intelligent in the face of belligerence, and to be united in these contentious times.  While you’re at it, see and hear this group live as they have developed into one of the more impressive ensembles in contemporary music.”
– Richard Kamins, Step Tempest

“This album is his quantum leap, a fearless, eclectic, politically charged collection that ought to go a long way in reaffirming his status as an elite bandleader as well.”
Lucid Culture

“I have no reservations [in] assuming that [the members] of Catharsis have each been up in the middle of the night wondering what the [hell] is going on [in our country] and how do we get out of it.”
Bird is the Worm

Look for Ryan on tour in North America and beyond this summer and fall.

You can purchase the album on Bandcamp and iTunes.

Find the Common, Shine a Light

“a potent blend of cinematic sweep and lush, ear-grabbing melodies”

LA Times

One of the most long-lived and acclaimed bands on the current jazz scene, Ryan Keberle & Catharsis continue to evolve their unmistakable group sound while speaking out about our troubled times on their fourth release. With six years of recording and extensive touring under their belt, the band stays true to its “potent blend of cinematic sweep and lush, ear-grabbing melodies” (Los Angeles Times) while opting for a more layered and multifaceted approach in the studio.

Even so, the signature Catharsis frontline of trombonist/leader Ryan Keberle (pronounced Keb-er-lee) and trumpeter Michael Rodriguez remains central. Vocalist Camila Meza assumes an added role on guitar and bassist Jorge Roeder appears more frequently than before on electric bass. Drummer Eric Doob brings not only his supple and animated playing to the project but also recorded the project at his studio, D.A.D.S in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
