Downbeat Award winner performs at Jazz Central

Syracuse NY – The 2019-2020 “Live at Jazz Central” concerts continue with an appearance by Ryan Keberle and Catharsis on Saturday September 21st at 7:30 p.m. Keberle has been named #1 Rising Star trombonist in the Downbeat International Critics Poll, and his group has appeared in jazz festivals worldwide.

Catharsis comprises some of the leading up-and-coming voices in jazz. Trumpeter Mike Rodriguez, bassist Jorge Roeder, vocalist Sarah Elizabeth Charles, and drummer Eric Doob have played roles in many of the world’s top jazz and Latin jazz ensembles including Charlie Haden, Gary Burton, Julian Lage, Christian Scott, Paquito D’Rivera, and Gonzalo Rubalcaba.

Ryan Keberle has been called an artist “of vision and composure” according to The New York Times. A major new trombonist, leader, and composer on the international scene, his music integrates the jazz tradition and draws heavily on world music, rock, and other influences as well.

“Our last show with Chico Freeman was a sellout, attracting an audience that came out in tribute to an old master,” according to Larry Luttinger, CNY Jazz Executive Director. “Ryan and his group have achieved similar accolades as their career arc ascends. We’ve celebrated the historic, now let’s celebrate the new generation of mastery when Catharsis comes to town. They are, literally, the future.”

Jazz Central, downtown Syracuse’s “busiest little theater” at 441 E. Washington Street, can accommodate up to 75 patrons in an intimate cabaret setting.

Tickets are $20.00, $10.00 with current student I.D. and are on sale now at or by calling 315-479-5299.
