Maneri's ECM debut Three Men Walking was an album-of-the-year selection in England's The Guardian, France's Jazz Magazine and Germany's Jazzthetik. On In Full Cry, the 70-year-old clarinettist/saxophonist/pianist, one of American music's great originals, leads his quartet through a programme of free improvisations, jazz standards, and spirituals that hark back to his days as a street preacher in Brooklyn. The musical exchanges between Joe and his son Mat (on electric 6-string violin) - employing the grammar of Father Maneri's 72-notes-per-octave microtonal system - are like nothing else in jazz.
