Summary:
The Thing took their name from a piece by Don Cherry: when they first got together it was to play his music. So it does make sense that they should eventually team up with Don Cherry's daughter, Neneh. Meeting in London in the fall of 2010 to record, it clicked right away as they all shared an open, free approach to the music. The high energy of The Thing's playing found a fitting counterpart in Neneh's intense style. Includes covers of songs from Suicide, The Stooges, Ornette Coleman, MF Doom.
"8.0 out of 10...a remarkably well-defined, cohesive, and above all things inviting listen, and at eight tracks it feels neither slight nor needlessly sprawling."--Pitchfork.
"...A wild record...a homemade record...it's a raw record..."--NPR Music.
"...Puts herself forward as a strong presence, never fully yielding to the band."--New York Times.
"...Is a seamless fusion of her influences (including her stepfather, the late jazz icon Don Cherry..."--Los Angeles Times.
