Jason Moran and the Bad Plus - New York Times: "The members of the Bad Plus are full-on jazz obsessives; if you have doubts, check their blog, which now includes a reader-assisted canon of the great jazz records from what is perceived as the music's dark years, the early 70's to the late 80's. It would be in character for them to cover tunes from out-of-print, small-issue jazz records. But they go the other way, putting pop-radio songs of their youth into their repertory."
