Perelman, Ivo / Mat Maneri: Two Men Walking (Leo)

Label: Leo    
Released in: Great Britain    

"If you watched enough Warner Brothers cartoons back in the day, then you are predisposed to appreciate the chamber jazz improvisations cooked up by Ivo Perelman's tenor saxophone and Mat Maneri's viola. Just like the soundtrack to Yosemite Sam's attempts to tiptoe up to a seemingly unsuspecting Bugs Bunny, the music here paints an aural picture show. Their's is a seriously whimsical ten-part cartoon improvisation set.

Perelman and Maneri recorded together once before, for the soundtrack to the Brazilian film A Violent Dose Of Anything (Leo Records, 2013) with pianist Matthew Shipp. in May of 2013. The two found a mutual bailiwick and returned in October to create these spontaneous pieces. Admirers of Perelman's duo work, be it with Shipp, guitarist Joe Morris, or various drummers such as Brian Wilson, Jay Rosen, or Gerry Hemingway, will find less of the push-and-pull in those other discs. With Maneri, the music is more accommodating, with a concerted effort to create a narrative.

Like Perelman, who began on the cello, Maneri's early classical training gave way to improvisation and new music. He forms a comfortable counter-point to the saxophonist's low notes and a companion to his upper register explorations. These chamber-jazz improvisations set about to make beautiful music together. With nary a truculent passage or obstinate note, this disc succeeds on every level."-Mark Corroto, All About Jazz
