The Music Box - The Bad Plus - Mark your calendars because The Bad Plus will hit the Music Box stage, Monday, May 1st at 8PM! The Bad Plus is a collective made up of bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, and drummer David King. All three are from the Midwest and they have known each other since their teens. Nonetheless, with the exception of one unimpressive meeting in 1990, it is only after spending their formative 20s apart -- King as a session player in Los Angeles, Iverson as the musical director for the Mark Morris Dance Group, Anderson as a prominent up-and-coming player on the New York jazz scene -- that they reunited in late 2000 to play a weekend club date in Minneapolis. The chemistry was immediate and obvious. They planned a second gig and a one-day recording session for the indie jazz label Fresh Sound and The Bad Plus was born! To purchase tickets, click here!

JazzTimes - Bill Charlap and and Renee Rosnes: “The two-car garage isn’t the first thing a visitor notices upon entering the suburban New Jersey home of Bill Charlap and Renee Rosnes. It’s the two-piano living room. The Steinways cuddle in the center, leaving little space for furniture or much else. The majestic instruments draw the eye immediately.”
