About Manteca - Live!

The Prince Edward County Jazz Festival presents: Manteca!
Forty-two years after their first downbeat, the jazz world collective Manteca continues to be an upbeat force of joyous sonic invention.

On January 20, 2020 the Juno Award winners delivered their 13th CD, Augmented Indifference, four original compositions by members Doug Wilde (keyboards) and Matt Zimbel (percussion) recorded at Revolution Recording in Toronto over four days with acclaimed engineer Jeff Wolpert.

With longevity comes a certain, “I yam what I yam,” creative defiance, an aural refusal to conform.

The New York Music Daily called Augmented Indifference " a deliciously uncategorizable blend of cinematic jamband rock. One of the most intriguingly unique records this year." Jazz Times called Manteca "one of contemporary music's most accomplished and original artists". Toronto Star music critic Peter Goddard called the work “gut grabbing innovation.”

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased online through the Regent Theatre!
