The Bad Plus

“If the stars align,” the Village Voice says of jazz renegades The Bad Plus, “they will mow you down.” The alignment was fortuitous indeed at the 2011 Duke Performances premiere of On Sacred Ground, where pianist Ethan Iverson, bassist Reid Anderson, and drummer Dave King tore apart and remade Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring in Reynolds Theater.
Now, as a part of Duke Performances’ special program of jazz shows presented in downtown nightclubs, you can get up close and personal with these stupendous musicians at Motorco Music Hall. Count on red-hot originals, high-wire improvisation, and daring covers from a lawless trio that is “better than anyone at mixing the sensibilities of post-60s jazz and indie rock” (NY Times).
The Bad Plus is a co-presentation of Duke Performances and Motorco Music Hall.
