    Made Possible finds the Bad Plus openly wrestling with the complex interrelationship between rhythm, harmony, and improvisation (individual and collective). It offers a more inviting aural view of the group confronting these questions, and the historic weight and imposing boundaries associated with "the piano trio" in jazz.

    Made Possible is as great as anything else they've done... and they've done quite a bit.

    Made Possible is at once vintage Bad Plus in its striking themes, nonchalant time-bends and full-on collective improv, and proof of this awesome ensemble's continuing evolution.

    From album to album, The Bad Plus continue to evolve and improve.

    The band is tinkering here, and it says something that the album still feels traceable to no other source.
