piano trio

wolf out, The Bad Plus

Anyone with an interest in modern jazz has at least heard of this genre-defying trio. For those who have been sleeping, this video from a 2004 concert at the Village Vanguard is fairly good quality youtube footage and a good place to start. To say that I love this band doesn’t even come close to describing my undying fandom. But until I put together a half-decent post on their music, check out Wolf Out, off their newly released album Made Possible.  Watch the wolf creep out of the wood, feel the minimalist vibe, delight in the odd-meter mystery, enjoy this eerie animal.
