I enjoyed listening to this. It would make a really good Carla Bley album. If it was Carla Bley I'd give it 4 stars. But it's not. It's her daughter. So, I deduct one star for the inability of Karen Mantler to do anything really unique. That having been said, there is a lot of good music on this disc. It is the story of Ms. Mantler's efforts to find a new pet after the death of her beloved cat, Arnold. It is a funny and touching story with Zappa-esque vocals and banter, and a very good band behind her to make it all come together. Nice production, good sound. Definetly worth checking out, especially if you're a Carla Bley fan.

Carla Bley brings her own sensibility along with a host of really talented players to answer a pressing question: What to do, now that her cat Arnold is dead? Yes, it's a very strange concept for an album, but then Karen is a very strange person. Luckily she's also a ver talented and creative musician, and these songs have a quirky charm that just sort of burrows into your mind and won't leave.

A further treat is the voice and poetry of Eric Mingus, who, rather than try and walk in his father's shoes, has struck out on a very different course. His voice is an ideal choice to compliment Karen's, and the two do a wonderful job of bringing her strange and curiously charming songs to life.

Karen Mantler's curious music is not for everyone. Rockers will find it confusing. Jazzers will find themselves scratching their heads, and asking, this is jazz? But give the samples a listen. You just might find that Karen's strange music speaks to you, as it does to me.

it's difficult to say which of her issues is best or better. in the tradition of her mom, carla bley, and dad, michael mantler, not to mention robert wyatt and jack bruce, she mixes a wide variety of music (rock, jazz, cabaret) in the tradition of escalator over the hill. all in the name of her now deceased cat. quel d'homage!
