Lucian Ban & Matt Maneri Duo
October 11, 2015 Lucian Ban - piano Matt Maneri - viola
New York-resident Romanian pianist Lucian Ban and American violinist and viola-player Mat Maneri offer a compelling union of sounds and approach. Maneri's melancholy sound and imaginative phrasing have been guided by the philosophies of his microtonalist sax-playing father Joe, Ornette Coleman's free-jazz, 12-tone and baroque music – though he retains a clear affection for old-school jazz-violin swing. Ban suggests Keith Jarrett, Monk and early Abdullah Ibrahim with 20th-century classical infusions.
