Sarah Manning


Alto saxophonist and composer Sarah Manning is a harmonious creature. She is the lone red fox atop a pile of shale on the outskirts of the urban landscape, her singular musical voice illustrating the contradiction of an artist drawn to the woods even as she feels the gaze of a thousand bright city lamps. With the release of Harmonious Creature on Posi-Tone on January 21st, 2014, she unites the small town and the metropolis with compositions featuring violist Eyvind Kang, electric guitarist Jonathan Goldberger, bassist Rene Hart and drummer Jerome Jennings.

Read "A New Kind Of Water" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

The other members of her group, alto saxophonist Sarah Manning, bassist Mat Muntz and drummer Stephen Boegehold, are adept at blending with her varied ...

Sarah Manning: Harmonious Creature

Read "Harmonious Creature" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

La giovane sassofonista del New Hampshire, estremo nord-est statunitense, ha certo più di una freccia al suo arco. Ce lo dice con chiarezza questo suo ultimo lavoro, inciso all'inizio del 2013 alla testa del proprio quintetto, entro cui un ruolo quasi altrettanto rilevante della leader gioca il violista Etvind Kang, specificatamente per l'impasto (per certi versi ...
