The Bad Plus to Release Make Possible
Jazz trio The Bad Plus will release their next studio album, Made Possible, on September 25, 2012. Recorded in upstate New York, it is The Bad Plus’ (bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, drummer David King) eighth studio effort and ninth release overall. The nine tracks on Made Possible include eight originals and a cover of the late Paul Motia’s “Victoria.” IFC.com recently premiered a short documentary on the making of Made Possible, which is available here and below.
“This band contains some of the most punk energy I’ve ever seen or felt as a musician – it just doesn’t need to do it so obviously,” King says. “That’s our statement. It’s a complex emotion.”
The Bad Plus will perform at Knoxville, TN’s Bijou Theatre on September 20. They have also confirmed that they will perform “On Sacred Ground: Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring” at San Francisco, CA’s Herbst Theater on October 12.
