Travel Tip: Jazz in United States
The Bad Plus

The Bad Plus
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS  •  Berklee Performing Center  •  Ongoing
Arguably one of the biggest breakout stories of jazz in the past decade, the Bad Plus (Reid Anderson, bass; Ethan Iverson, piano; and David King, drums) has connected with the jazz world and beyond with These Are the Vistas (2003), Give (2004), Suspicious Activity? (2005), and Prog (2007). All three members of the Bad Plus hail from the Midwest. The roots of the group date back to circa 1984 when King first heard Anderson sing in a junior high rock band. By 1989, Anderson and Iverson were playing free jazz at restaurants throughout Americaís dairy land. While 1990 marks King, Anderson, and Iversonís first musical encounter, the groupís eponymous debut album was released in 2001 on Fresh Sound, a Spanish independent label. A 2002 performance at New Yorkís Village Vanguard led to the signing with Columbia Records. Since its debut recording, the group has been touring relentlessly, playing to and establishing one of the most diverse and ecstatic cross-over audiences at jazz clubs, symphony halls, and rock venues in the U.S. and abroad.
