[Listen to Dave King in the Nextplayer]

“Play the piano drunk like a percussion instrument until the fingers begin to bleed a bit.”
–Charles Bukowski

Jack DeJohnette and Joe Chambers are two jazz drum legends who’ve released records that featured their prowess on the drums and piano. Now, with the Sunnyside release of Indelicate, the Minneapolis-based drum wizard Dave King – a founding member of boundary-pushing trios The Bad Plus and Happy Apple – joins that impressive, albeit rarefied company. Only this time, the artist takes this sonic duality a step further, tackling both instruments on the same recording.
