The Bad Plus
The Bad Plus came together at the end of the 20th century and has avoided easy categorization ever since, winning critical hosannas and a legion of fans worldwide with its creativity, unique sound and flair for live performance. Based in New York City, the intensely collaborative trio has constantly searched for rules to break and boundaries to cross, bridging genres and techniques while exploring the infinite possibilities of three exceptional musicians working in perfect sync. The Bad Plus' ninth studio recording (and its first since the 2012's Made Possible), The Rite of Spring continues the leaderless trio's committed belief in what it has dubbed 'avant-garde populism' — the idea that serious music can be as engaging and accessible as it is forward-thinking and provocative.
