Douglass St Music Collective, 295 Douglass St, Brooklyn , February 9, 2012, numerous musicians influenced or inspired by Joe or who worked with him throughout the years will gather together in an intimate setting to celebrate, through music, words and stories, the life of the late composer, improviser, educator, saxophone and clarinet player, Joe Maneri who passed away in August, 2009. Open to all, bring your instrument or your voice, a story, a poem or just your ears and some appreciation for Joe.

Joe, who passed away in August, 2009, was little known to many mainstream music lovers but to those fortunate enough to play music with him, to see him perform live or lucky enough to have heard some of his recorded music, he has been named a godfather of the improvisational jazz scene who is sorely and sorrowfully missed.

Sonja Holzwarth Maneri, wife of the late composer, improviser, educator, saxophone and clarinet player, Joe Maneri, has penned a moving, heartfelt memoir about her life with Joe. Love Notes and Love Lines, My life with Joe Maneri, is a touching and honest account of their lives together and provides insight and a deep understanding of their relationship, spiritual journey and is a moving statement of love, patience and friendship in its purest form.

Love Notes and Love Lines, My Life With Joe Maneri by Sonja Holzwarth Maneri, can be ordered from Harvard book Store. Telephone: (617) 661-1515 / Email: [email protected] / Website:
