2011's The Wanting, Glenn Jones' first album for Thrill Jockey, was recorded in a fourth floor apartment on Commonwealth Avenue, Allston, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston, overlooking the commuter train line. If you listen carefully to the record, you can occasionally hear trains going by in the background. Reuben Son recorded the album between December 12, 2010, and April 20, 2011. The Wanting was mixed and mastered by long time collaborator Matthew Azevedo. Simply put, 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 Wanting has three new banjo pieces on it. All of them, for whatever reason, are relatively short in comparison to my guitar pieces. I also think they give the album its varied feel – they're a nice complement to the guitar pieces, which tend to be longer and more emotionally complex. The other piece that is a bit of a departure, perhaps, is the last track on the album, the 17-minute long "The Orca Grande Cement Factory at Victorville" (the title is an homage to John Fahey's "The Portland Cement Factory at Monolith, California"). - Glenn Jones
