The Bad Plus
On Sacred Ground - Stravinsky's Rite of Spring as imagined by The Bad Plus
Reid Anderson, bass
Ethan Iverson, piano
David King, drums
Few jazz groups in recent memory have amassed such acclaim, and as much controversy, with their audacious band ethos and avant-garde populism. In their own words about Sacred Ground: "the melding of modernist classical music with jazz has been attempted before, but typically in such experiments the drums are left behind. Of course TBP could never leave the drums behind... We hope [you] will find our discoveries and journey through The Rite of Spring a source of pleasure and inspiration."
"By any standard, jazz or otherwise, it is moving, mighty music--bad to the bone, hot players with hard-rock hearts." - Rolling Stone
