About the album
Mat Maneri has played Aron to Joe Maneri's Moses - to borrow a Schoenbergian reference - on four previous ECM recordings, helping to communicate to the outside world the difficult path of his father. All along, however, there has also been something more at work, the shaping of a sound of his own, which blends jazz phrasing with chamber music dynamics, and draws inspiration from the baroque fugue and the scattered music traditions of the world, as well as from free improvisation. This is Mat's first entirely solo, all-acoustic album.
