    The Bad Plus Joshua Redman Resumes Tour; Album Named Best Jazz of 2015 by PopMatters
    David Jacobs

    The Bad Plus Joshua Redman kicked off the final leg of its 2015 tour in Boulder, Colorado, last night, and continues to tour the United States with stops in Arizona, New Mexico, and California in the coming week, culminating with a four-night residency at the SFJAZZ Center December 10–13. The eponymous debut album from the quartet—saxophonist Joshua Redman and The Bad Plus bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, and drummer David King—has been named the No. 1 Best Jazz Album of 2015 by PopMatters.

    "Together, it turns out, the band is particularly wonderful," writes PopMatters' Will Layman in giving the band the top spot. "Tunes by Reid Anderson on this outing are particularly hip and funky on this outing, and Redman’s songs are among the most intriguing, including 'Friend or Foe,' with its long through-composed section, a highlight of jazz in 2015."

    As recently noted in the Nonesuch Journal, The Bad Plus Joshua Redman has also made Mojo magazine's list of the Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2015.

    Redman and Iverson spoke with the San Francisco Chronicle for a feature article in advance of the group's several shows in the Bay Area next week. You can read what they have to say at sfchronicle.com.
