Michael Mantler: Movies/More Movies
Picking things up three years later, More Movies is decidedly less dramatic due to a change in personnel, with Coryell’s electrifying sting giving way to the more tempered approach of Philip Catherine. Still, this work is as focused and harmonious as Movies is visceral and spontaneous, making the most of Mantler’s quirky originals. Whether you call it fusion or jazz-rock, this reissue brings to light music that bridges the gap between mainstream and contemporary sensibilities.
