The Bad Plus
June 9, 2016 | 7:30 pm- $30 – $35
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 their 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. They continue to explore myriad musical forms born of jazz along with any sonic source that forwards the music into that rarest of hybrids: intelligent music for the masses that will be on full display as The Bad Plus makes their triumphant return to Portland.
“The Bad Plus embrace sonic adventure…seething with funky new-millennium rhythms and succulent harmonic flights.” – Entertainment Weekly
