Ryan Keberle & Catharsis: Find the Common, Shine a Light

Read "Find the Common, Shine a Light" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Pur confermando l'avvincente impronta stilistica evidenziata nei tre album precedenti, il pianoless quintet di Ryan Keberle presenta un lavoro leggermente disorganico e musicalmente più superficiale dei precedenti, forse perchè distolto da un intento politico (contestare l'elezione presidenziale statunitense del 2016). Il percorso musicale raccoglie due famosi temi della contestazione giovanile degli anni sessanta («The Times They ...

Read "Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases of 2016" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Another year is almost in the books. And while there were many things to fret about in 2016, a lack of good music wasn't one of them.

While the blues is a distinctly American creation, formed, fueled, and furthered by the African diaspora, the United States holds no ownership on blue-streaked sounds.

Ryan Keberle & Catharsis: Into the Zone

Read "Into the Zone" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

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 ...

Ryan Keberle & Catharsis: Into The Zone

Read "Into The Zone" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

At the tail end of 2013, trombonist Ryan Keberle contributed an enlightened article-cum-manifesto to The NYC Jazz Record.
