I love metal, but I've been playing a lot of jazz lately. (It's doing wondrous things for my improvising.) I think I may have found my new favorite jazz combo: The Bad Plus. Three guys reinterpreting modern tunes. This one is an amazing interpretation of "Iron Man":

I love how the tune goes major briefly near the end, then back to minor.
Man, there is some talent on that stage. I love the drummer's elastic sense of time, and the entire band's ability to track with him through all the tempo shifts. The immediate standout, though, is that killer pianist.
