Few jazz groups in recent memory have amassed such acclaim and inspired such controversy as The Bad Plus. For 17 years, it has thrived at the intersection of jazz, indie rock and contemporary classical music, inspiring Rolling Stone to call it "about as badass as highbrow gets." Among the tightest, hardest-working bands in the world, it has never had a lineup change or substitution.

The Bad Plus has a well-earned reputation for daring deconstruction, pushing the limits on what is expected of a piano-bass-drums trio. The genre-smashing band has created a distinctive repertoire of inventive and exciting original music, along with iconoclastic covers of artists as divergent as Nirvana and Neil Young, Aphex Twin and Ornette Coleman.

This engagement of The Bad Plus is made possible through the Jazz Touring Network program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
