Mat Maneri

Son of microtonal reedist and theorist Joe Maneri, violinist/violist Mat Maneri began playing music with his father at the age of 7. Although Joe is himself a near-legend among avant-garde and jazz musicians, Mat has already surpassed his father’s recorded output in the course of his relatively short career.

Mat has worked with the Joe Morris Quartet, recorded various albums with his father, which has included various quartets featuring drummer Ralph Peterson, trios with the likes of Joe Morris or Barre Phillips, and a duo recording on ECM. He has also led recording sessions for ECM (the acoustic solo Trinity), Hatology, Leo, and Thirsty Ear.
