INTERNATIONAL JAZZ SERIESThe ThingMixing jazz with noise, avant-rock and punk,the music of The Thing has been described as‘garage-jazz’ and ‘impro-punk’. The band wasestablished in the spring of 2000 when thethree musicians met to play several concertsand to record their first CD.Since then, The Thing has grown into one ofthe most successful and hardest working freejazz trios around, traveling all over the world.They have performed with guests like JoeMcPhee, Ken Vandermark, Thurston Moore,Peter Evans and Neneh Cherry.When the trio started out, their repertoirecontained mainly tunes by Don Cherry,hence the group’s name. Since Joe McPhee’sparticipation, The Thing’s repertoire hasincluded other free jazz standards by DavidMurray, Frank Lowe and Norman Howard. Also,the group’s enthusiasm towards rock musicis heard when they play “To Bring You MyLove” by PJ Harvey on their second CD. Today,the book has expanded to include tunes byThe White Stripes, The Sonics and Yeah YeahYeahs. These are just examples to show howclose musical styles are today and how similarthe energy can be. The group is influencedby different traditions of free music derivedfrom Germany, England and the United Statesalthough these influences are to be felt – notnecessarily heard.Mats Gustafsson is Sweden’s and one ofEurope’s biggest names on the free musicscene.
