Michael Mantler è titolare in questo periodo anche di un'importante iniziativa editoriale, che vede la pubblicazione delle partiture complete di sue opere scelte nell'arco di un'intera carriera. Tre finora gli eleganti volumi prodotti, disponibili presso Ecm, tutti introdotti da Richard Williams: The Jazz Composer's Orchestra And Its Updates, Voices And Words, Concertos And Suites.

EDITIONS - Volume One - THE JAZZ COMPOSER'S ORCHESTRA AND ITS UPDATES (256 pages), includes engraved scores of all compositions contained on the two corresponding recordings, The Jazz Composer's Orchestra (1968 / JCOA 1001/2) and The Jazz Composer's Orchestra Update (2013 / ECM 2391), as well as facsimile scans of the original scores that were used during the iconic 1968 recording sessions.

EDITIONS - Volume Two - VOICES AND WORDS (280 pages) includes engraved scores for the music contained on Many Have No Speech (1988 / WATT/19), Cerco Un Paese Innocente (1995 / ECM 1556) and Hide and Seek (2001 / ECM 1738), a selection of Mantler's extensive work with the very special voices of Jack Bruce, Robert Wyatt, Marianne Faithfull, Mona Larsen and Susi Hyldgaard, interpreting texts by Samuel Beckett, Ernst Meister, Philippe Soupault, Giuseppe Ungaretti and Paul Auster, all in orchestral contexts.

EDITIONS - Volume Three - CONCERTOS AND SUITES (272 pages) includes engraved scores for purely orchestral works from Concertos (2008 / ECM 2054) and CODA / Orchestra Suites (2021 / ECM 2697).
