Joe Manis Trio
Teutonic Wine Company
3303 SE 20th Ave. Portland, OR 97202
Steeple Chase recording artist Joe Manis is noted for the strength of his “intense, updated take on the glorious Rollins-‘Trane tradition.” (Willamette Week) Manis was the recipient of a 2013 Oregon Arts Commission Individual Artist Fellowship. His album for SteepleChase Records, The Golden Mean, features George Colligan on organ, Kevin Congleton on drums, and Lillie Manis on viola and was released in 2015. North By Northwest was released by SteepleChase Records in 2013.
He released his debut album Evidence in 2009 features Manis on tenor saxophone, Kevin Congleton on drums, and Portland luminary Dave Captein on bass: the Willamette Week called the album “explosive,” and said “(Manis) makes Pink Floyd’s ‘Money’ sound like something a young John Coltrane might have played”; the Eugene Weekly said: “Fabulous… Will thrill fans of Monk, Rollins.” Click here to go to his website.
