    The Bad Plus & Joshua Redman

    Reinventing the standard jazz trio with a defiantly convention-breaking approach to improvisational music, The Bad Plus has carved out a niche as one of the most unique voices in modern music.

    Reinventing the standard jazz trio with a defiantly convention-breaking approach to improvisational music, The Bad Plus has carved out a niche as one of the most unique voices in modern music. The trio, featuring pianist Ethan Iverson, drummer Dave King, and bassist Reid Anderson, first gained notice for their audacious, script-flipping interpretations of rock and pop songs. Tunes that have gotten the Bad Plus treatment include Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man,” Blondie’s “Heart of Glass,” Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” The Bee Gees’ “How Deep Is Your Love?” and even Stravinsky’s “Variation d’Apollon.” Yet, despite their reputation for brilliant covers, The Bad Plus’ compositional skills should not go unnoticed. The Minnesota-based band’s 2012 album, Made Possible, focused exclusively on new pieces contributed by all three musicians. Whatever the origins of the tunes they explore, The Bad Plus has developed a singular group concept and sound that makes for a thrilling ride. In the words of Rolling Stone, The Bad Plus is “about as badass as highbrow gets.”
