The Bad Plus

Monday 06 December 2004 - Caf

Tickets 12 (8 concessions & regulars)

Doors Open: 8pm

Show Starts: 9pm

There's a real buzz about the Bad Plus. Iconoclastic, witty and with heaps of attitude, they re-invent the piano trio and haul it into the 21st century. Edgy, anarchic and totally accessible, they create a stunning new take on improvisation with original music mixed up with radically deconstructed songs from the rock pantheon - Nirvana, Blondie, Aphex Twin, Black Sabbath, even Abba - they all find their way into the Bad Plus universe. Pianist Ethan Iversen's genre-blasting attack combines with bassist-of-the-moment Reid Anderson and the phenomenal percussionist Dave King to produce music that veers from headlong free jazz to outbursts of minimalism and down-home swing. This tour marks their first UK dates since the release of their brilliantly reviewed Sony CD, Give.

"A breath of fresh air? More like a whirlwind" The Times

"Seething with funky new-millennium rhythms and succulent harmonic flights" Rolling Stone
