Karen Mantler Trio
The charmingly self-effacing pianist-harmonicist performs music from her downbeat new album, Business Is Bad, with Kato Hideki (bass guitar) and Doug Wieselman (bass clarinet, guitar). Mantler's music is intimate and confessional, ranging from songs about her creative process ("My Magic Pencil," "My Solo") to lyrics bemoaning her personal financial crisis (the title track, "I Can't Afford My Attorney").
