The Bad Plus

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm nightly:

The Bad Plus came together in New York City at the end of the 20th century and has avoided easy catego­rization ever since, winning critical praise and a legion of fans worldwide with their exploratory sound and kinetic live performances. The intensely collaborative trio has bridged genres and techniques while exploring the infinite possibilities of three exceptional musicians working in perfect synchronization. Their latest album, The Bad Plus Joshua Redman (released May 2015), is a powerful joint effort with one of today’s premier saxophonists, garnering a GRAMMY nomination. “With the most distinctive sound of any three–piece outfit since Nirvana, The Bad Plus demonstrates a vitality that few bands – rock, jazz, or whatever – can match.” (Amplifier)
