Performing “On Sacred Ground: Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring”
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. On their eighth studio album, Made Possible, the trio takes its distinctive musical style to captivating new heights, proving once again that the rules of musical convention are made to be broken.
“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
