EDITORS’ NOTES

Like so many younger jazz musicians today, Ryan Keberle’s far-flung influences are a seamless amalgamation of genre and era—in his case Duke Ellington, the Beatles and Sufjan Stevens (with whom he’s toured) come to mind. This, the second album from his quartet Catharsis, thoughtfully and playfully integrates all of the above with an overriding warm connective-ness of the blues that reaches beyond the aptly titled opener and Charlie Parker’s “Cheryl.” Camila Meza’s musical voice adds much, too—check out Cole Porter’s “Easy to Love” and her gentle postmodern scat on “Zone.”
