The Bad Plus

BRISTOL Colston Hall
Colston Street


The Bad Plus detonate musical genres and expand all expectations of what an apparently standard jazz piano trio can achieve. With an egalitarian approach that transcends category, they de-construct and re-construct a century of sound that takes them from Black Sabbath to Stravinsky to Queen to jazz standards, as well as devastatingly original new compositions - music that derives its energy and attitude from the diverse talents of three master improvisers: pianist Ethan Iversen, bassist Reid Anderson and drummer Dave King.
