“A roaring and beautiful summit meeting….It exhibits genuinely fresh thinking.”—NPR
Outstanding jazz ensemble The Bad Plus has almost exclusively performed as a trio for its nearly 20-year existence. Although guests have occasionally joined the band in concert, this special collaboration with tenor sax star Joshua Redman is a bold step for a band that stresses its egalitarian identity as a seamless, tightly woven trio. But as rave reviews for their self-titled release on Nonesuch pour in, it’s clearly been a step that has further developed—and added new dimensions—to The Bad Plus’s already distinctive group sound.
Redman has regularly stretched his talents through teaming with artists such as Christian McBride, Brad Mehldau, and Pat Metheny, as well as with the SFJAZZ Collective and his bandmates in James Farm. Redman embraced this opportunity to record and tour extensively with The Bad Plus, which as he explains, “has allowed me to explore a part of my playing, and my musical heritage, that I’ve never before accessed in quite the same way with any other group. The adventure with The Bad Plus pushes me toward the fringes and draws me into the core.” Hear Redman unfurl his immaculate extended tenor solos up close in a series of original tunes penned for the quartet by pianist Ethan Iverson, bassist Reid Anderson, and drummer David King. Don’t wait to get tickets for this highlight of our jazz season; their two killer sets in the best room in town for jazz are sure to sell fast.
