The Bad Plus

Saturday 30th May @ Malthouse Theatre, Southbank

With a joyously subversive approach that transcends category, The Bad Plus expand all expectations of what a standard jazz trio can achieve.

Incorporating elements from several centuries of musical composition, this New York-based collective have garnered a cult following with their devastatingly original compositions and transformative covers of anything from Stravinsky to Black Sabbath, Blondie to Radiohead.

Each a master improviser in their own right, as a trio they deliver a creative chemistry and imagination unparalleled in contemporary jazz.

"The Bad Plus are the Coen brothers of jazz: Midwesterners, both ironic and dead earnest, technically brilliant, beyond versatile, a little chilly sometimes, but funny, surprising, and pretty hard to pin down." - The New Yorker

Saturday May 30, 7:00pm and 9:00pm
at Malthouse Theatre

Appearing as part of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival
May 28-June 7, 2015.
