The Bad Plus

Friday 11 July 2008 23:30-1:00 (Radio 3)

Jez Nelson presents a gig recorded at London's Jazz Cafe in June featuring cult US piano trio The Bad Plus. The members - bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson and drummer David King - have known each other since their teenage years.

They have developed a trademark repertoire, combining original compositions and improvisational takes on pieces from the rock and pop mainstream, ranging from David Bowie's Life on Mars to the theme from the film Chariots of Fire.

Duration:

1 hour 30 minutes
