The Bad Plus
Blue Note, Greenwich Village Tuesday April 28 2015 - Sunday May 3 2015
Once known mainly as the quirky trio that made its name covering rock and pop tunes, the Bad Plus now comes off as an exemplary contemporary jazz combo, by turns cerebral, visceral and disarmingly emotive. Pianist Ethan Iverson, bassist Reid Anderson and drummer Dave King boast a rare magnetism that transcends genre, even when the band undertakes something as challenging as Stravinsky's ballet Rite of Spring or Ornette Coleman's Science Fiction LP. Here, the trio digs into its own increasingly deep back catalog, fleshed out on a fine 2014 release, Inevitable Western.
