‘The Hope I Hold’ from Ryan Keberle & Catharsis is available now

It’s release day for the Ryan Keberle & Catharsis album The Hope I Hold!

After four acclaimed studio albums, it’s the first Catharsis release to feature the genius multi-instrumentalist Scott Robinson on saxophone, alongside band veterans Keberle, Camila Meza, the Peruvian-born bassist Jorge Roeder and the drummer Eric Doob. The new album also marks the debut of Meza as the group’s guitarist, in addition to her often wordless contributions as a vocalist.

Inspired by the poetry by Langston Hughes and the music of South America, trombonist Keberle expands his musical contributions on both vocals and keyboards throughout the album. Also featured is the band-wthin-a-band Catharsis Trio that includes Keberle, Meza, and Roeder, who present four tunes that fit seamlessly with the album’s aesthetic.
