The Bad Plus set for 'Dazzle Jazz' shows / Denver Post

Bookmark and Share

January is typically a quiet month for jazz in Denver, but The boundary-pushing piano trio The Bad Plus has two nights scheduled at Dazzle Jazz ON Jan. 17-18. Pianist Ethan Iverson, drummer Dave King and bassist Reid Anderson are known for their audacious covers of rock songs made famous by names like Black Sabbath and Radiohead. Their latest release, "It's Hard," consists solely of covers, mostly from unexpected sources. In addition to being open-minded interpreters of songs known outside of the jazz canon, the band puts on a particularly compelling, cerebral and often humorous live show. The Bad Plus has solidified itself as one of the most dynamic bands in improvised music right now.
