Ryan Keberle: Something Speaking
AAJ:This is a pretty ambitious debut. What do you want to do next? What are you looking forward to?
RK: My first recording as a leader was even more fun than I could have imagined. If I had millions of dollars, I'd be making a new record every month. I love the process. I'm one of those people who need some kind of motivating factor to really get the work done. But since that's not going to happen, what I really want to do is try to get this band some work outside of New York. I'm currently working on setting up some kind of tour out in the Pacific Northwest, where I'm from, playing the university circuit out there and spreading the word while developing a greater rapport among the band members and giving us an opportunity to start playing some new music, as well. At this point, I perceive my next record utilizing the same instrumentation. I feel like it gives me a lot of possibilities in playing and writing and arranging.
