The Bad Plus The Bad Plus (Jay Fram)

ARTIST: The Bad Plus


The Bad Plus, "Seven Minute Mind"

GIG: Wednesday night at Jazz Standard ($30)

The Bad Plus looks like a jazz piano trio. But they mix elements of rock, electronica and classical too. Case in point: Their newest record is a re-imagining of Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring.” But the live version of this 2012 track, “Seven Minute Mind” contains piano work that even Stravinsky might envy. You can catch The Bad Plus tonight through Sunday at Jazz Standard.

I'm 99% sure it's The Bad Plus, pron. "ploo," the French way, not "pluss," the American way.

That's the way (meaning the French pronunciation) I first heard them referred to, the way they introduced themselves @ the Village Vanguard at a New Year's Eve show, and yet whenever Soundcheck talks about them, they're plus.
