Recently named the #1 Rising Star Trombonist in Downbeat's annual critics poll and hailed by the New York Times as “a trombonist of vision and composure”, few musicians have managed to navigate the richly varied avenues of New York City's abundant music scene with the same passion and adaptability as trombonist and composer Ryan Keberle. Since moving to New York City from Spokane in 1999, Keberle's diverse talents have earned him a place alongside a staggering array of legends, superstars, and up-and-coming innovators including David Bowie, Wynton Marsalis, Alicia Keys, Maria Schneider, and Sufjan Stevens. Keberle combines that wealth of influence and experience into a bold group sound with his piano-less quintet, Catharsis. Described by the Los Angeles Times as “a potent blend of cinematic sweep and lush, ear-grabbing melodies” Keberle presents Catharsis in a performance of their one-of-a-kind indie-jazz with songs rich in deep groove, melodic invention and group interaction. The primarily word-less vocals of Camila Meza mesh seamlessly with trombone, the trumpet of Mike Rodriguez, bass of Jorge Roeder, and drums of Eric Doob to create a lush sound filled with drama and intrigue. The band members of Catharsis bring an impressive wealth of experience playing an integral role in many of the top jazz and Latin jazz ensembles including the bands of Charlie Haden, Gary Burton, Julian Lage, Christian Scott, Paquito D'Rivera, and Gonzalo Rubulcaba. In the Spring of 2016 Catharsis finished a highly successful tour of Europe which included performances at the Bergamo Jazz Festival, Pizza Express in London, and Duc des Lombards in Paris in promotion of their latest record, called Azul Infinito, released on Dave Douglas's Greenleaf Music. Repertoire will be selected from this latest release inspired by modern-day jazz and folkloric composers from South America, along with more recently developed material. Azul Infinito has garnered enormous critical praise and attention from critics around the world with the New York Times stating "there's heart and soul in Mr. Keberle's tunes” and Billboard magazine hailing Azul Infinito as one of “5 new jazz albums you need to check out”.
