“powerful duo of Brazilian free-jazz saxophonist Ivo Perelman and violist Mat Maneri.”
Strings 1 and Strings 2 are the first of seven recordings to showcases the powerful duo of Brazilian free-jazz saxophonist Ivo Perelman and violist Mat Maneri. These musicians have worked together on and off since 2013, producing several outstanding albums, but here they are joined by additional artists that bring new contexts to the pair’s outstanding exploratory work. It’s not the first time Perelman has featured a close collaborator in a series of albums, having done so with great success with drummer Gerald Cleaver and pianist Matthew Shipp. Such projects present Perelman as master TK, adding and subtracting reagents to affect the results, and they represent an ambitious segment of his discography.
