Ryan Keberle & Catharsis: Into the Zone

Vincenzo Roggero By

Sign in to view read count
Into the zone, ossia quello stato mentale che permette ai musicisti di astrarsi completamente dalle distrazioni esterne per concentrarsi esclusivamente sul processo creativo. Prende forma così una condizione di estrema confidenza, di palpabile intimità tra musicisti, le cose accadono con estrema naturalezza e le idee fluiscono senza impedimento alcuno. È questo l'approccio dichiarato dal trombonista e compositore Ryan Keberle per il secondo album del suo quartetto denominato, guarda un po, Catharsis.

Melodie sognanti, arrangiamenti invisibili -tutto sembra funzionare in maniera autonoma-ritmo che scivola silenzioso, senza attriti ma perennemente in guardia, la voce che spinge ulteriormente la musica "into the zone," il disco è una camera di decompressione per gli affanni quotidiani, luogo di meditazione e di piacevoli conversazioni.

Tanto che due autori agli antipodi come Charlie Parker e Cole Porter trovano una collocazione tutt'altro che bizzarra nel palinsesto allestito da Keberle, abile nell'esaltare la vena melodica di un brano come "Cheryl" mantenendone la fragranza ritmica e nel rivestire di sapore orchestrale "Easy To Love." Con i nove minuti della title-track a condensare filosofia ed umori del quartetto, avvolti in una nuvola di vapore benefico, coccolati dalla voce di Camila Meza, e la melodica del leader che soffia sui tasti dei ricordi.

Track Listing: Inevitable Blues; Gallop; Ballad Of The Sad Young Men; Without A Thought; Simple Sermon; Cheryl; Easy To Love; Zone.

Personnel: Ryan Keberle: trombone, melodica; Mike Rodriguez: trumpet; Jorge Roeder: bass, bass FX; Eric Doob: drums; Camila Meza: vocals; Scott Robinson: tenor saxophone.
