Who Do We Think We Are? Review

by AllMusic

...Turtle Island String Quartet is funked up, cooled down, turned asunder, "rhythmatized" jazz played by a string quartet that goes way beyond the intellectual restrictions placed on the string quartet. Turtle Island String Quartet blows away any staid notions about the violin and cello on Thelonius Monk's "Who Do You Think We Are?," the album's title cut and the piece that sets the stage for musical acrobatics. Even Jimi Hendrix's "Gypsy Eyes" is fair game for the group's new musical tricks...
