"Activate Infinity"

Activate Infinity is the second album from The Bad Plus since the remarkable pianist Orrin Evans joined the trio back in 2018. With their sights set on a new trajectory, combined with an abundance of spirit and creativity, the trio have produced one of their finest and most original albums to date. This is group music played with vibrant imagination and vigour. It’s real, deeply honest and personal. Their joy in music-making together is clear and their vision is committed and democratic. With a new home on the British label, Edition Records, the trio are working with a renewed intent that will see them grow to new heights and continue to flourish. Sit back, listen and enjoy the ride!

I liked them better with Iverson - just me.

Saw this group in 2019 - Orrin Evans a miscast and the drummer was beside himself ....

The new lineup hasn't convinced me yet either. I have been a fan ever since I heard the Pizza Express broadcast on BBC radio February 2003, but perhaps they should call it a day? Reid Anderson had some great solo projects in the past like Abolish Bad Architecture and The Vastness of Space. The Bad Plus was a steady source of income, so it's understandable they aren't eager to throw the towel in the ring.

This is a very listenable album. I like it.

They'd better step up though.

Listening again, but where is the wicked humour Ethan Iverson brought as a pianist and the trio, being greater than the sum of its parts, exhibited every time they recorded or were on stage?

I'll be seeing them when they play at the Shalin Liu Music Hall in Rockport, MA. I haven't seen them in a while so I am looking forward to seeing them again. That being said, I don't think I've seen them with Orrin Evans in the piano chair, so it'll be different.
