If you don't already know about it, allow me to introduce you to NPR Music's First Listen. They stream new albums in their entirety before the albums are released. There are usually 4 or 5 available at any one time.
Julia Figueras told me first. Then I heard it from Dave Sluberski, WXXI's audio engineer. The Bad Plus brought a singer with them for their Rochester International Jazz Festival appearance. A singer?! I admit I was skeptical. The trio works so well on their own, a singer could only get in the way, I thought.
