Mat Maneri Quintet
Apr 28, 2012 09:00 PM - 11:30 PM
Mat Maneri regroups his quintet with an all new line up featuring veterans Oscar Noriega “rich sound…opulent resonance…highly individualized voice” – JazzTimes, Kris Davis " in New York one method for deciding where to hear jazz on a given night has been to track down the pianist Kris Davis." - NY Times, newcomer Garth Stevenson and long time collaborator, Randy Peterson “one of the great jazz drummers to emerge in the past couple of decades” - JazzTimes.
The quintet will feature all new music blending contemporary jazz, microtonality and modern classical music. The unusual acoustic instrumentation of viola, bass clarinet, piano, bass and drums will also seamlessly weave in electronic ambience. The quintets goal is to follow in the great jazz tradition and lineage of expanding the boundaries of improvised music, they are currently preparing to record for the Dahabenzapple label who will be releasing the new Maneri/Peterson duet “27” later this year.
“Mat (Maneri) upholding avant-garde excellence,…engrossing, ruminative viola improvisation of contrasting reticence” –- Boston Globe
