Bottoms Up!

Saturday, October 06, 2007

Telepathically tight and musically adventurous, the members of the Bad Plus test the limits of what an acoustic bass-drums-piano band can do. This time around, their latest release, “Suspicious Activity?” contains mostly originals, with some doses of seriousness, taken with a shot of abandon, a chaser of meditation, some communion with jazz forebearers, and the inevitable cheekiness. On this New Sounds program, we’ll sample from “Suspicious Activity?”, and dig into the new record from the Brad Mehldau Trio. The Trio’s “Day is Done” features more interpretations of tunes you might recognize - a Radiohead tune here, a Beatles song there, Nick Drake songs, and a version of the Burt Bacharach tune “Alfie.” Also, there’s music by bass virtuoso Michael Manring from a new solo CD of works, recorded without overdubs, and containing the oft-requested “Selene.” And so much more.
