The father-and-son team's improvised chamber music, as radical as it is graceful, brings the yearning passions of jazz and blues together with lessons learned from Schoenberg, microtonalism, and a dozen world music traditions, to produce experimental jazz at its most warm-hearted and inviting.
Joe Maneri is a true American original. "... one of the great innovators in jazz history," writes Harvey Pekar. “(Mat) Maneri's virtuosity is everywhere apparent," says The Boston Phoenix.
