Bookmark and Share

The Bad Plus have earned a reputation as iconoclasts. After all, this trio has presented  fearless demolitions of pop classics such as "Chariots of Fire" as well as reverential performances of numbers such as "New Year's Day". Along the way, they have explored such ambitious projects as Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" and even invited Joshua Redman onboard for their live performances and recording of last year. For this new effort, the band is again a trio: Reid Anderson on bass, Ethan Iverson on piano, and David King on drums. And it's hard is all covers. However, as most Bad Plus fans know, a Bad Plus cover is not necessary delivered in a recognizable form. Melody, pulse and key are all subject to change.
