Is it possible to achive fame with your first CD? This is exactly what Joe Maneri has done. More than that, Joe Maneri has re-written the history of Jazz. In the 1950s he anticipated the 1980s and '90s avant-garde scene. If George Russel, Paul Blake and Cecil Taylor tell us that he is a genius, there must be a grain of truth in it. "Joe Maneri is one of the most important musicians in the history of free jazz, and this album ranks as one of the most beautiful that we have ever heard in this field". JAZZ MAGAZINE (France)
