Phil Manzanera and Anna Le Nth Entities CD

Nth Entities, is a unique collaboration between Phil Manzanera and poet Anna Le.  

Comprising a collection of nine poems, in which Anna Le recites her work over original Manzanera compositions, the deluxe edition, presented in a beautifully illustrated book of Anna Le's poems, comes with four bonus tracks.
 
The project began two years ago, when Phil and Anna had a chance encounter at Gavin Martin's 'Talking Musical Revolutions', during an evening dedicated to the life and work of Jimi Hendrix.  Charles Shaar Murray,  music writer and Hendrix's biographer, was captivated by Anna's Jimi poem and turned to Phil saying, "You should set that to music." 
 
Charles Shaar Murray writes in the album foreward:
"And lo and behold...he's done just that. (He) has framed a whole heaping handful of Anna Le's verse in a staggering variety of musical settings."
 
Anna Le's powerful verse, ranges from specific homages to Jimi Hendrix, Lee Scratch Perry and Stevie Wonder, to musings on Lego Limbs, herself as a 'mixed Caribbean kebab', and the realities of 'The American/British Dream'. 
 
Musically, the album marks yet another innovative departure from the ever-creative Phil Manzanera.
