It is with deep regret that ECM and XtraWATT announce the release of Karen Mantler's newest recording Farewell. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made by purchasing the Compact Disc.On Farewell, the visionary singer/songwriter (and daughter of Carla Bley and Michael Mantler) laments the death of feline friend Arnold with an impassioned set that tugs at the heart. Mantler chronicled her relationship with Arnold on two previous XtraWATT releases, My Cat Arnold and the critically acclaimed Karen Mantler And Her Cat Arnold Get The Flu. She had barely finished mourning before entering the historic Grog Kill Studios to record Farewell - not 15 yards from Arnold's final resting place.
