Hi everyone, time for more regular posts on my VERY new and improved website.  As you can guess, I’m SUPER excited about the pending release of Music is Emotion, the debut release of my band, Ryan Keberle and Catharsis.  Since our Pre-CD Release Party at the Jazz Gallery this past December the album has been generating much exciting buzz around the jazz world.  Hot House featured me on their front page last month with their critic George Kanzler saying the album “…all adds up to a remarkably inclusive and surprisingly diverse and expansive album” and that the compositions and arrangements are “richly episodic” and have a “dramatic, cinematic quality to them.”  The great Lenny Pickett called the CD  “clean and austere…. totally awesome!” and Maria Schneider said it “doesn’t get any better than this”.  Also, look for featured reviews in the NY Times (!!!!) and Downbeat among other upcoming reviews.  You can pre-order the record here:  http://ryankeberle.bandcamp.com/
