The Bad Plus - Rite of Spring breaks onto this week's Jazzweek chart

Bookmark and Share

The Bad Plus recording of Igor Stravinsky's - The Rite of Spring on Sony Masterworks has been shaking it up quite a lot at jazz radio. Bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, and drummer David King – have a well-earned reputation for pushing the limits on what is expected of a piano-bass-drums trio, and this release is no different. Their interpretation of perhaps the greatest classical orchestral work of the 20th Century has been performing both on the CMJ & now Jazzweek chart coming in at #5 & 42 respectively.
