The Thing & Neneh Cherry The Thing (L) & Neneh Cherry (R)

Songs and the singers who sing them from around the world is the focus of this New Sounds. Sample the record by Neneh Cherry and Scandinavian jazz trio, the Thing who named themselves after a Don Cherry composition.  That powerful Nordic three-oh is saxophonist Mats Gustafsson, bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love. 

Neneh is the stepdaughter of the late American improvising trumpeter Don Cherry, (and a pop, punk, hip hop and world music star in her own right) who spent her early years touring with him and other jazz legends like Miles Davis.  Also, hear music from Ethiopian singer Mahmoud Ahmed, New England folkie Sam Amidon, and new music from the group Tin Hat and their settings of poetry by e.e. cummings.  Plus, hear songs from the likes of Iceland, Ireland, Senegal, Georgia (the country) and beyond.
