"By adding Redman, TBP can wail. Before, they could pound and glitter, bang and shatter and sing, but they could not wail"

Albany's WAMC - Northeast Public Radio: Rogovoy Report promoted the show with this column: 

And listen up jazz fans, hard-driving modern jazz trio, the Bad Plus joins forces with dynamic saxophonist and improviser Joshua Redman for a unique program at the Mahaiwe in Great Barrington, tonight at 8. The Bad Plus, led by former Mark Morris Dance Company music director and pianist Ethan Iverson, initially gained fame for its innovative jazz versions of modern tunes by rock bands including Blondie, Nirvana, the Bee Gees, Radiohead and Queen. It also tackles pre-rock standards and Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring." Joshua Redman carries on the post-bop tradition of the likes of Sonny Rollins and his own father, Dewey Redman. Together, The Bad Plus Joshua Redman, as they call themselves, attempt to steer the music to a new place altogether.
