Much acclaimed 1997 album (Joe's 2nd for ECM) featuring Joe Maneri (clarinet, alto & tenor saxophones, piano), Mat Maneri (six-string electric violin), John Lockwood (bass) and Randy Peterson (drums, perc.). "Confirms his legendary status after years of relative obscurity. He's always been the radical outsider. His queasy slitherings and slidings on tenor, alto and clarinet evoke memories of Lester Young and Artie Shaw as if refracted through a prism of atonality. Nothing stays 'on pitch' for long. The effect here is again 'jazz meets Webern'. This is not immediately approachable music, but its mostly gentle, tender gestures gradually draw the listener into a unique soundworld." --Andy Hamilton/The Wire
