Charles Amirkhanian introduces an unsettling composition by a musician whose work lies between jazz and classical music. Michael Mantler’s piece, “Many Have No Speech” (1988), which was 18 months in the making, consists of settings of texts by Samuel Beckett, Ernst Meister, and Philippe Soupault. The vocalists include Jack Bruce, Marianne Faithfull, and Robert Wyatt. Amirkhanian talks with the composer and samples his work. (from KPFA Folio)
