Neneh Cherry and The Thing - The Cherry Thing (UK 2012)

Recent CD arrival.

This one has been on my wants list for a while since hearing the awesome version of Suicide's "Dream Baby Dream" on an uncut CD Last year. Arriving recently for my listening pleasure, this collaboration presents us with a kind of jazz inflected I don't know what. The brilliant version of the Stooges "Dirt" reminds me of Morphine, just to give you an idea. Lots of dirty late night sax and heavy beats. A great set with mostly covers and a couple of originals, including one tracks by Neneh's father Don Cherry as well as an Orenette Coleman number to close the set. A very cool release and rating 4/5.
