Neneh Cherry And The Thing

Critics' choice
Neneh Cherry
Neneh, daughter of late jazz great Don Cherry, gets in tune with her paternal legacy with this new project, which sees the 'Buffalo Stance' singer team up with terrific Scandinavian avant/improv jazzers The Thing. Unabashed fans of Cherry Snr, The Thing's post-rock 'n' skronk is nicely tempered by Neneh's soulful but pop-savvy vocals, as current collaborative debut LP, 'The Cherry Thing' attests.
