In the Heartland With The Bad Plus: At Nighttown and More - Jazz Police

It was just a few years ago that three young musicians with Midwest roots joined (or rejoined) together to create music that stretched the boundaries of modern jazz like elastic. They made two low-profile recordings before all hell broke loose with a big-label, chart-topping CD, These Are the Vistas (Columbia, 2003). And it wasn't a fluke, as The Bad Plus proved with more commanding sets for Columbia, Give,(2004)and Suspicious Activity (2005). The Bad Plus is a totally original, daring, and—above all—increasingly sophisticated melding of high talent and hot combustion. Bringing a surreal yet symphonic approach to an original and "borrowed" repertoire, this acoustic trio features Ethan Iverson's gorgeous, percussive piano, Reid Anderson's often-melodious, never laid-back acoustic bass, and the incredible resumé of rhythm and sound from Dave King's drum menagerie, all united in the spirit of true collaboration. Warming up for their March tour of Europe, the Bad Plus will bring this spirit back to the American Heartland with February gigs at Cleveland's Nighttown (February 9th), followed by stops in Chicago (Old Town School of Folk Music, February 10th); Lexington, KY (Memorial Hall, February 11th), and Charleston, WV (West Virginia Cultural Center, February 12th).
