The Thing

Yeah that’s right, it's The Thing baby! Saxophonist Mats Gustafsson, bassist Ingebrigt Haker Flaten and drumkit powerhouse Paal Nilssen-Love play in a thousand and one different contexts these days, but it's great to hear them return to the roots of what really launched them into the free jazz world and beyond. Three longer tracks on this one, proving once Again that The Thing really are where it's at.

Art rock meets jazz by The Thing on this album titled Garage. Recorded back in 2004 and finally mixed for your aural pleasure in 2014, this recording from Mats Gustafsson on saxophones, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten on smooth double bass, and Paal Nilssen-Love hammering the drums, plays some raw versions of songs from everyone from Richard Berry to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
