The Bad Plus, made up of pianist Ethan Iverson, bassist Reid Anderson, and drummer Dave King, came together at the end of the 20th century in Minnesota and has avoided easy categorization ever since. The trio has won countless critical hosannas and a legion of fans worldwide with their creativity, unique sound and flair for live performance. Based in New York City, the intensely collaborative trio has constantly searched for rules to break and boundaries to cross, bridging genres and techniques while exploring the infinite possibilities of three exceptional musicians working in perfect sync. They continue to explore myriad musical forms born of jazz along with any sonic source that forwards the music into that rarest of hybrids: intelligent music for the masses. This special 2017 tour will mark Iverson's last appearances with the group, so this will be your last chance to see the original trio in all of their spectacular chemistry and glory.
"The Bad Plus embrace sonic adventure...seething with funky new-millennium rhythms and succulent harmonic flights." - Entertainment Weekly
