Karen Mantler's offbeat jazz-pop—her lyrics have often fixated on her late cat Arnold—is about what you'd expect from the daughter of uncategorizable composers Michael Mantler and Carla Bley. The singer, pianist and harmonica player recently sprang back into action in a trio with bassist Kato Hideki and guitarist-clarinetist Doug Wieselman. Both are on hand for tonight's gig, which supports Business Is Bad, a 2014 ECM co-release featuring droll yet quietly elegant Mantler originals such as "I Can't Afford My Lawyer" and "Surviving You."
