“Better than anyone at mixing the sensibilities of post-60s jazz and indie rock…” - The New York Times

The Bad Plus has spent over 15 years redefining what a piano-bass-drums trio can and should be. They’ve reached audiences of all demographic stripes with genre-defying music that is at once complex, heartfelt, humorous, and instantly engaging. Featuring bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson and drummer David King, The Bad Plus is a leaderless trio with a committed belief in what they’ve dubbed ‘avant-garde populism’ — the idea that serious music can be as engaging and accessible as it is forward-thinking and provocative.

“This band contains some of the most punk energy I’ve ever seen or felt as a musician — it just doesn’t need to do it so obviously,” King says. “That’s our statement. It’s a complex emotion.”

style: avant-garde / modern jazz
