Live from ronnie scott's: The Bad Plus. Live stream - Thursday 27th July @ 8.15pm (BST)

Continuing its commitment to providing a worldwide audience the opportunity to experience world class jazz and exclusive shows through its programme of live video streaming, Ronnie Scott’s will live-stream the final night of The Bad Plus this Thursday.
The Bad Plus bend the rules in their own way, drawing on classical, rock and jazz to create their own febrile sound that is as invigorating now as it was when they released their eponymous debut album in 2001.
With their covers of material from Aphex Twin to Blondie, and Nirvana to Yes, they helped redefine the possibilities of what a piano trio could do and were one of the first bands to open up jazz to a younger, hipper audience, helping pave the way for the new wave of piano-trios such as Michael Wollny Trio and GoGo Penguin.
The band have been performing together as a unit since 1990 without the lineup changing, so it was with shock that in April this year the band announced that pianist Orrin Evans would replace founding member Ethan Iverson in a new chapter of the band in January 2018.  Quite possibly, this presents the last opportunity ever to see the original Bad Plus in an intimate UK club setting.  Expect material from last year’s release, ‘It’s Hard ‘featuring material from Prince, Kraftwerk, Johnny Cash and Ornette Coleman, alongside their own hard-hitting originals.
Line Up: Reid Anderson (bass), David King (drums) and Ethan Iverson (piano)
Available to watch via RonnieScott’s.co.uk Facebook Live, YouTube Live.
