The Bad Plus

Performing “On Sacred Ground: Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring”

“This is a recording of a jazz trio playing the score to a 101-year-old ballet. It is not a ‘jazzing the classics’ record or a ‘fantasia on the themes of’ sort of project. It is a band translating one of the landmark works in music history to piano, bass and drum set, and doing it as literally as possible.”—NPR

The Bad Plus is a musical trio that maintains a distinctive and grounded sound while also taking artistic risks and pushing traditional boundaries. Reid Anderson, Ethan Iverson, and David King have spent more than a decade redefining what a piano-bass-drums trio can and should be. They have reached audiences of all demographic stripes with an uncompromising body of original music (plus some ingenious, genre-jumping covers) and dedicated touring around the globe.

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

“From album to album, the Bad Plus continues to evolve and improve.”—BBC
