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

The New British Jazz Scene in 10 Albums

Hard bop, hip hop, free jazz, groove, electro, calypso, experimental or Caribbean: the key players of the new British jazz scene are open to everything. They know their classics like the back of their hands though they certainly don’t hold back from exploring all kinds of genres, making for a wonderfully eclectic sound. We look back over ten essential albums.

Lee Morgan, Breathless

Highs (his recordings) and lows (in his personal life). Lee Morgan was THE greatest trumpeter on the Blue Note label. A career that was brought to a shuddering halt by his ex-wife's gun…

Nat King Cole, a King for All

Timeless and universally adored, Nat King Cole would have celebrated his 100th birthday on March 17th, 2019. The sophisticated pianist and silky crooner was immensely popular with mainstream audiences in the forties and fifties, while still fascinating genuine jazz fans with his innate class. In the land of royalty, the King (Cole) had earned his place alongside the Duke (Ellington) and the Count (Basie).
