The first anthology of the work of Michael Mantler, “Review” features material chosen by the trumpeter/composer, and draws upon more than 30 years of recordings for JCOA, WATT and ECM. It is a powerful album, which traces a unique musical path.

After studying trumpet and musicology in Vienna, Michael Mantler (born 1943) moved to Boston in 1962 to continue his education at the Berklee School. Within two years he was living in New York, playing with Cecil Taylor, and at the heart of new jazz activities. With Taylor, Bill Dixon, Archie Shepp, Sun Ra, Paul Bley, John Tchicai and others he was a member of the Jazz Composer’s Guild, and beneath its umbrella founded, with Carla Bley, the Jazz Composer’s Orchestra, the first large ensemble of its kind. At 25, Mantler wrote extraordinary orchestral frames, “to complement, surround, and inspire (but not to control or restrict) some of the truly great and original improvisers of free jazz”. On “Preview”, from 1968, we hear Pharoah Sanders soloing explosively in what is certainly one of his most astonishing performances on record.
