There’s a mess of bobbing and weaving in the trombonist’s foursome, and at its most aggressive, it can have an edge-of-your-seat vibe. The jabs Keberle and trumpeter Mike Rodriguez throw at each other on the new Music Is Emotion remind that, on some level , jazz is about dazzling interplay. Factor in the cagey swing of the rhythm section and you’ve got a quartet resolute in its restlessness. Pretty damn tight, too – but you’ll hear that instantly in this cozy Park Slope bar.
