The Bad Plus Releasing Album of Originals - Never StopJuly 12, 2010
E1 Music is excited to announce the release of The Bad Plus's new album, NEVER STOP, on September 14, 2010. It is the band's first album of all originals, and it's eighth release overall. Recorded in Minnesota, NEVER STOP does just what the title says. It's a rapid-fire succession of engaging performances by three musical explorers operating as highly skilled individuals -- bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson and drummer David King -- and as a seamless unit at the same time. NEVER STOP is a strictly instrumental affair and, as a result, is a 180º departure from the group's previous release, For All I Care, which featured alt-rock vocalist Wendy Lewis on covers of rock classics, along with re-imaginings of 20th Century classical compositions by Stravinsky, Ligeti and Babbitt.
