For the better part of a decade, the progressive Jazz trio known as The Bad Plus have been stirring up a musical stew that defies easy description.
Drawing on sources as diverse as classical, Jazz, Rock, Pop and beyond, they have created a singular aesthetic that forces even the most skeptical listener to rethink the commonly held notions of what differentiates one style of music from another. Following the release of PROG, the trio wanted to try some new ideas and broaden their musical concept.
A mix of highly familiar Rock and Pop pieces alongside some not-so-familiar 20th century classical compositions, FOR ALL I CARE represents the bands egalitarian approach to all forms of music, regardless of source, genre or style. The album also marks the first Bad Plus recording to include a guest vocalist as the fourth instrument in it's sonic arsenal.
Wendy Lewis, a longtime associate of the Plus and a fixture in the Minneapolis alt rock scene, steps in and takes the trios ongoing experimental ride to a new level of exploration and sophistication. The Plus make their way through songs by Nirvana, Pink Floyd, Wilco, Heart, Flaming Lips and more.
