Super cool vocalist Neneh Cherry joins forces with electrifying Swedish/Norwegian free-jazz trio The Thing!

This feels like an almost destined album for former pop/soul singer Neneh. "The Cherry Thing" harks back to the jazz-infused post-punk days of her time in early eighties band Rip, Rig + Panic, and with obvious inspiration from her legendary trumpet-playing step-father Don Cherry.

Stand out tracks include their beautiful, melancholy eight-minute Suicide cover "Dream Baby Dream", "Accordion" a fantastic sassy, sax-wobbling cover of MF DOOM. Neneh works her ghostly vocsl magic on a powerful version of Don Cherry's "Golden Heart".
