Ethan Iverson & Mark Turner
When the Bad Plus pianist Iverson turns his attention to standards and drops into local clubs with like-minded pals, he brings his considerable imagination with him. So free-range romps might conclude with a Tin Pan Alley head, and nuggets from the great American songbook might have some Silly Putty applied to them. Saxophonist Turner is skilled at this as well; I'm recalling a "Skylark" that not only had a protractor in its back pocket, but lots of heart on its sleeve. Bassist Reid Anderson and drummer Nasheet Waits won't let anyone drift for too long.
