Mat Maneri Quartet

Ars Nova Workshop presents violist Mat Maneri, one of the most original and compelling artists of his generation, leading his stellar quartet at Solar Myth on Saturday, October 7. 

Over the course of a twenty-five year career, Mat Maneri has defined the voice of the viola and violin in jazz and improvised music. He’s garnered acclaim for his high degree of individualism, a distinctive marriage of jazz and microtonal music, and his work with 20th century icons of improvised music. After growing up with the influence of his father, microtonal composer and saxophone innovator Joe Maneri, he’s gone on to work with icons such as Cecil Taylor, Paul Bley, Paul Motian and William Parker, as well as influential 21st century bandleaders such as Joe Morris, Vijay Iyer, Matthew Shipp, Marilyn Crispell, Joelle Leandre, Kris Davis, Tim Berne and Craig Taborn. At Solar Myth he’ll be joined by his quartet featuring longtime collaborator Randy Peterson on drums, and Lucian Ban on piano, celebrating the release of their second Sunnyside release, Ash.
