Vocalist Wendy Lewis Joins The Bad Plus on New Album

Following the release of last year’s Prog, the Bad Plus-bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson and drummer David King-plan the February 3 release of their next album, For All I Care on the Heads Up International label. Simultaneously, Heads Up will release a limited-edition 180-gram double-LP including two bonus tracks: a cover of U2’s “New Year’s Day” and an original piece by Anderson entitled “You And I Is A Comfort Zone.”

The album marks the first Bad Plus recording to include a guest vocalist, Wendy Lewis, a fixture in the Minneapolis alt-rock scene. The recording is inspired in part by the collaborative recording by John Coltrane and vocalist Johnny Hartman, released in 1963.
