The Bad Plus

THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Ethan Iverson, piano Reid Anderson, bass David King, drums The Bad Plus has exploded all notions of what a jazz piano trio should sound like. Drawing on sources as diverse as classical, jazz, rock, pop and beyond, they have created a singular aesthetic that forces even the most sceptical listener to rethink the commonly held notions of what differentiates one style of music from another. Their latest album, For All I Care, features music from Nirvana to Milton Babbitt, via Pink Floyd and Stravinsky. “...a reminder that American jazz hasn’t gone to sleep. Play any of their albums and their collective sound leaps out of your speaker, steps all over your furniture and scares the bejesus out of the cat.” Observer Music Monthly
