It's not generally a good sign when the central figure in a group jumps overboard but the ship keeps sailing on. But the departure of pianist Ethan Iverson from The Bad Plus didn't stop his bandmates Reid Anderson and David King from continuing their own adventure. Since 2018, the double bassist and drummer have been teamed up with Orrin Evans. At 44 years old, this former student of Kenny Barron and Joanne Brackeen (and frontman on over 20 albums) is no novice – although his fame only extends within a select circle. The piano-based identity of this Philadelphia musician is so strong that he feels no need to "replace" Iverson, but rather to write a new chapter with Anderson and King. The Bad Plus, version 2.0, have made a groundbreaking new album with the UK label Edition Records. Throughout Activate Infinity, Orrin Evans brings a new roundedness, different from that of his predecessor; but in a fraction of a second he can also dive into more avant-garde improvisations. Above all, he has found the balance between remaining himself and blending in with the rhythms of Reid Anderson and David King. In short: the saga continues… © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Jazz: A Woman's World

Excluding singers, women in jazz haven’t had an easy time making their way to the front of the stage. There are of course the likes of Mary Lou Williams, Jaimie Branch, Geri Allen and Alice Coltrane. But up until recently, female jazz artists have been few and far between in the male-dominated and at times rather sexist genre.

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Gone to heaven, Betty Davis remains the pioneer of feline soul sisters. The funk goddess par excellence. She was also one of the leading ladies in a certain Miles Davis' life, whose wife she would be for a short time. But who really were you Betty?

Chris Connor, a Forgotten Voice

What if she really was the greatest cool jazz singer of them all? Almost twelve years after she passed away, Chris Connor remains one of the most sensual voices of her generation. After all, there's more to life than Anita O'Day and June Christy...
