Spanky Wilson & The Quantic Soul Orchestra I'm Thankful
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Ubiquity
Quantic Soul Orchestra's annexation of senior jazz-soul singer Spanky Wilson for "Don‘t Joke with a Hungry Man" was pure new-funk genius. QSO's crisp snares and tight, mellow horn harmonies work perfectly behind Wilson. That the two should combine for a brilliant album is obvious, but I'm Thankful falls short of the mark. Besides two takes each on "Don't Joke," many of its 10 tracks are either half-hearted in their writing or tread too-familiar territory. "Im Thankful" and a few others push Wilson towards her potential, but too often, the songs barely have enough meat on their bones for Spanky to eat.
