Ryan Keberle’s deep into the investigation of sundry musics, working to hint at sounds pouring out of speakers across the world, and outlining his findings with the honeyed tone of his trombone.

The Hope I Hold, Keberle’s fourth album with his quintet Catharsis, is due out June 28 on Dave Douglas’ Greenleaf Music. The album, like so much music today, centers on the bandleader’s understanding of the States’ political entrenchment. The result, though, is a beautiful and evocative sketch of where his group currently stands: Camila Meza’s voice and guitar figuring heavily into the music’s DNA. And on “Peering,” which debuts here, bassist Jorge Roeder earns his first songwriting credit amid a shrunk down Catharsis subgroup of just guitar, bass and trombone that wends its way through a delicate and somber number.

“The repertoire has really taken on a life of its own,” Keberle said in a press release. “From a compositional standpoint, this really has become a collective project. And for someone who’s been leading bands for a long time now, that’s a really fun thing to be a part of.”

Saxophonist Scott Robinson and drummer Eric Doob also contribute to the recording.

    In 1958, John Coltrane turned 32. He’d just rejoined Miles Davis’ band after a sojourn with Thelonious Monk, and had in the previous year finally freed himself of his addiction to drugs and alcohol.
