The Bad Plus Plays It Straight(ish)

The Bad Plus is about equally likely to play Nirvana or play Stravinsky. But mostly they play their brand of up-to-the-minute jazz. Will Layman looks at the new recording by the Bad Plus, Never Stop, discusses the band’s history, and talks it over with the group’s pianist, Ethan Iverson.

The Bad Plus: Prog

Jazz trio covers Tears for Fears without irony, Bowie with care, and outdoes Rush's "Tom Sawyer" with their originals. No jazz album this year even comes cloes.
