'The Wanting' is Glenn's first album for Thrill Jockey (and fourth album overall) and follows the instantly sold out 'Even To Win Is To Fail' LP (a split with The Black Twig Pickers released for Record Store Day 2011).
Glenn Jones is a leading talent in the so-called modern "American Primitive" school of acoustic steel string guitarists, a school that includes the late great John Fahey, Robbie Basho and Jack Rose - all of whom were friends and collaborators of Glenn's.
'The Wanting' is a collection of original compositions for solo acoustic steel string guitar, six-string, 10- string and bottleneck, and 5-string open-back banjo.
The album's 17+ minute closing track features Glenn joined by master percussionist Chris Corsano.
