With Give, The Bad Plus explores the horizons intimated on These Are The Vistas and delivers the group's most satisfying collection to-date. On Give, the trio teamed up once again with Grammy-winning producer Tchad Blake, whose experimental signature sound has graced projects by Peter Gabriel, Pearl Jam, Los Lobos, Tom Waits and Elvis Costello.

Recorded and mixed last October by Tchad Blake at Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England, and co-produced by The Bad Plus and Blake, Give is the groundbreaking trio at its best. A formidable musical experience, Give is a rollicking sonic adventure with new compositions from each of the group's members alongside covers by the Pixies ("Velouria"), Ornette Coleman ("Street Woman"), and Black Sabbath ("Iron Man").

 

Reviews

 

01/01/2004 Entertainment Weekly

"...high art, not pop gimmickry...The Bad Plus embrace sonic adventure without selfish avant-gardism...seething with funky new-millennium rhythms and succulent harmonic flights."

 

01/01/2004 The Washington Post

"The band's most potent weapon lies in original composition...There haven't been this many memorable tunes on a typical modern jazz recording in years."

 

01/01/2004 The Times (London)

"...the group's increasingly sophisticated writing is what makes this album remarkable. A breath of fresh air? More like a whirlwind."

 

01/01/2004 Los Angeles Times

"...among the potential leaders of what might be called the Nu Jazz movement—an eclectically blended, acoustically framed, dynamically powerful variation on mainstream jazz."
