Edition announces the release of the eponymous album by Bad Plus.

A brilliant “classic” trio with the line-up of piano, double bass and drums, for more than twenty years, The Bad Plus have developed a personal and eclectic musical vision; first with the contribution of Ethan Iverson, pianist of the formation until 2017, then with his substitute Orrin Evans.



Evans’ departure from the line-up was a moment of catharsis and group change: instead of continuing with the usual line-up, Reid Anderson on double bass and Dave King on drums invited Ben Monder on guitar and Chris Speed on sax to redefine the sound of the group.

The new album is thus characterized by a formidable energy, as can be heard in the guitar solo of “Sun Wall”, or by the rock grooves of “Not Even Close To Far Off”. You can hear pseudo-electronic sounds in “You Won’t See Me Before I Come Back”, which features a particularly nice melody, and “Stygian Pools”, a melancholy medium-time number.

“In The Bright Future” is a rubato-style song, sounding halfway between rock aggression and jazz lyricism, while the last track “The Dandy” recall pop themes, still with a slight melancholy note.
The Bad Plus confirm themselves as an intriguing ensemble, always looking for new sounds and stimuli, and “The Bad Plus” is a courageous album, interesting to say the least.
