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