The Bad Plus' distinct sound and formidable musicianship completely outstrips any expectations of what a jazz piano trio should sound like. With a penchant for live performances that are loud and rowdy, they've been spellbinding both jazz and rock audiences for almost a decade...The collective of Reid Anderson on bass, Ethan Iverson on piano and David King on drums has gained a reputation for its deft, adventurous compositions, drawing on a range of influences as diverse as Ornette Coleman and Stravinsky. Their original music has been described as."action packed and totally schizophrenic Ð in a good way" (Rolling Stone). Making music to engage audiences, the band complements their own songs with edgy arrangements of smartly selected standards from alt rock and classic sources, such as Nirvana, Blondie, David Bowie, Burt Bacharach and Black Sabbath.
