Trombonist Ryan Keberle and his quintet Catharsis are one of the most versatile “jazz” groups in New York today. And not what you might expect. Featuring vocalist/guitarist Camila Meza, the band uses riveting contrapuntal arrangement for horns to frame songs that communicate directly. This new video is for Keberle’s take on the Beatles song “The Fool on the Hill” from the protest album, Find the Common, Shine a Light, released earlier this summer on Greenleaf Music.
