The Bad Plus

After all these years it kinda comes down to thrust. One of the reasons the mainstream press deems the King-Anderson-Iverson triumvirate a “power trio” is because of the bedrock oomph that defines their maneuvers. The pianist’s poignant gusto, the drummer’s natural swag, and the bassist’s stately projection—each is crucial to the chemistry of volition at the heart of their work. No wonder their most gripping sets feel like a piece of theater.
