The Bad Plus - For All I Care
Jul 30, 2019
I really enjoy the covers of the more contemporary rock and pop songs here. Barracuda, Long Distance Runaround, and Feeling Yourself Disintegrate are all stellar energetic covers which elegantly and creatively adapt the source material to a jazz-quartet setting, but the weird spacy morphine-jazz of Comfortably Numb, Radio Cure, How Deep Is Your Love?, and Lock, Stock, and Teardrops is where The Bad Plus really shines through, straining the characteristics of jazz to their very limit. The modern classical pieces here, unfortunately, aren't all that interesting, though they're very well-performed. Still, this album has more than a few highly-enjoyable and replayable tracks worth your time.
