Karen Mantler's Lean Songs for Lean Times

Karen Mantler

Karen Mantler has felt the economic downturn. In fact, her new album is called "Business is Bad." But for Karen, less has always been more. Her jazzy songs are lean, witty, and keenly observed, without an once of fat, or an extra note. Economy comes naturally to Karen. She brings her new trio, with Doug Wieselman and Kato Hideki, to the WNYC Studio, joining David Garland for performances and conversation.
