descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Paul Bley has an heir at last, and his name is Russ Lossing. With strong classical training and the natural talent to improvise, this pianist is, like Bley, walking a hard road to achieve his purposes. As far as free jazz is concerned, he doesn't play what you would normally expect from what some also call "fire music". Lossing clearly preferes nuance to power, even if he does have the drive. In "Metal Rat" we find two first line string players at his side (small wonder, considering Lossing's other partnerships: Dave Liebman, Paul Motian, Bob Moses, Bobby Previte...the list goes on), violinist / violist Mat Maneri and bassist Mark Dresser, and it all makes sense. Maneri's adaptation of the serialism is well known, and the way Dresser uses his bow makes clear the kind of background he has. This isn't "chamber jazz" or "third stream", but jazz with an extra dimension, well supported in the modern and contemporary piano tradition as much as in jazz piano history. The pace of the music is quite surprising, especially since it was recorded with a sense of urgency, taking less than four hours in the studio. It includes two compositions and four improvisations, and on the title track Lossing manipulates the inside of his instrument with his fingers and several objects, the sustain pedal always down. You can't get more physical than that."-Clean Feed


Artist Biographies:

"Mat Maneri was born in 1969, and started studying violin at age five. He studied privately with Julliard String Quartet founder Robert Koff, and with bass virutuoso Miroslav Vitous. Mat received a full scholarship as the principal violinist at Walnut Hill High School, but left school to pursue a professional career in music. By 1990, Mat founded the critically acclaimed Joe Maneri Quartet with Randy Peterson. Mat started releasing records as a leader in 1996, and has developed four working ensembles. Pianists Paul Bley, Cecil Taylor, Matthew Shipp, and Borah Bergman have called upon Matt to perform with them in such venues as the Montreal Jazz Festival, the Library of Congress, and concert stages across Europe. Mat also enjoys a strong relationship with bassists Ed Schuller, Mark Dresser, William Parker, Michael Formanek, Barre Phillips, and John Lockwood. Never to be boxed in, Mat has also worked with Joe Morris, John Medeski, Tim Berne, Cecil McBee, T.K. Ramakrishnan, Franz Kogelman, Roy Campbell, Spring Heel Jack, Draze Hoops, and appears on an Illy B Eats remix CD. Mat presently teaches privately and through the New School / NYC, and performs and records worldwide."
