Jazz Artist Ryan Keberle and Catharsis in Concert Nov. 3

Furman University Department of Music will host a concert featuring acclaimed Jazz composer and trombonist Ryan Keberle and his quartet, Catharsis, Thursday, Nov. 3 at 8 p.m. in Daniel Recital Hall on the Furman campus.

The concert is open to the public. Tickets are available at the door and are $5 for adults and $3 for students.

Described by Downbeat magazine as “accessible and thoughtful, lyrical and cerebral,” Keberle has managed to navigate the richly varied avenues of New York City’s music scene with passion and adaptability. Since his arrival in 1999, Keberle’s talents have earned him a place among an array of legends, superstars, and up-and-coming innovators.

Whether leading his pianoless quartet Catharsis or arranging for the little big band setting of his Double Quartet, Keberle draws upon lessons learned while playing alongside masters of diverse forms. Keberle has performed with jazz greats like Maria Schneider and Wynton Marsalis; icons David Bowie, Justin Timberlake, and Alicia Keys; Latin jazz artists Miguel Zenon and Ivan Lins; and indie rock ground-breakers such as Sufjan Stevens. He has also played in the house band at “Saturday Night Live,” on the soundtrack of a Woody Allen film, and in the pit for a Tony-winning Broadway musical.
