Background

The first-ever duo album from the the highly-idiosyncratic American masters of microtonal improvisation. Father and son Maneri speak a musical language all their own, even when, as here, they reach out to embrace standards (Mat's rivettingly strange account of "Body And Soul"), spirituals (a wildly emotional "Never Said A Mumblin' Word) or Greek music (Joe's tribute to Charlie Gardenis, "the Bird of the Greek clarinet").
