With the release of III behind us, BADBADNOTGOOD are already on to bigger and badder things. While I was certainly a fan of the release, I felt like it was really only the tip of the iceberg as far as original works go for this young jazz outfit. With the one-off release of “Velvet”, it appears the trio has already begun to expand on their sound. Driven by the vibraphone work of Alex Sowinski, who also happens to be the man behind the drums, “Velvet” feels elevated and atmospheric. It’s more like what we expect from one of the most exciting jazz groups of today.
