    Though he is best known as an educator and innovator of microtonal music, composer/multi-reedsman Joe Maneri has pursued a profoundly varied musical path for the better part of a century. During the swing jazz era, the teenage Maneri became notorious for his freewheeling approach to soloing and improvisation; considered far too radical at the time, he eventually found a home for his ear-stretching sounds as a performer on the ethnic music circuit. Eventually, Maneri found a kindred spirit in his sometimes wedding-band partner, drummer Peter Dolger, recording a posthumously released 1963 session entitled PANIOTS NINE. Nearly a follow-up to the ethno-free jazz excursions of their debut, PEACE CONCERT is a record of a 1964 performance given as part of an all-night concert at St. Peter's Church in New York City. Exhumed and remastered from the original low-fidelity tapes, it is a fascinating document of the initial stirrings of a completely freeform musical language--one that evolved in relative isolation from the contemporaneous developments of figures such as Steve Lacy, Ornette Coleman, and Albert Ayler.

  • Critic Reviews
    The Wire (p.62) - "Maneri dives ever deeper into his emerging patterns to finger increasingly rarefied inflections. He rejects big moments of structural arrival in favour of lines that spiral outwards, accumulating depth and a complexity of gesture."
