The Bad Plus
“…about as badass as highbrow gets.” – Rolling Stone
The Bad Plus reestablish their Midwestern roots with their annual appearance at the Dakota, where they first appeared under the name “Dave King Trio” in 2000. With their fiercely iconoclastic sound and brilliant original music, they have achieved a level of success that few jazz groups have ever elevated to.
“If the Coen Brothers put together a jazz trio, perhaps it would be like this, the comic and the dramatic rolled together.”
- The Guardian
“With the most distinctive sound of any three-piece outfit since Nirvana, The Bad Plus again demonstrate vitality few bands– rock, jazz, or whatever–can match.”
