The Bad Plus

It didn't dawn on me until I spent time with the new Never Stop, but the Bad Plus's famed flourishes are sometimes tsunamis of catharsis. There's an emo aspect to the originals that populate the disc, with Ethan Iverson's piano pining at various points and Dave King's drums fueling anthemic expressionism. It's even in the ballads: can't recall them ever offering more pathos than they do on "Snowball." This big stage might bolster such oversized notions. Saxophonist Sam Newsome opens.
